Yankees 10, Phillies 2
Game 74 - Wednesday Afternoon, June 24th in New York
Record - 26-48, 5th Place, 14 games behind the Nationals
One Sentence Summary: Cole Hamels struggled against the Yankees and the Phillies came back down to Earth in a 10-2 loss.
What It Means: The Phils will enjoy an off day Thursday and then welcome the first place Nationals to town for a three game weekend series.
What Happened: Hamels allowed five runs on eight hits in five innings. Justin De Fratus also got hit hard, allowing four runs in the final two frames of the ballgame. Maikel Franco cooled off with an 0 for 4 day.
Featured Card: Each time Hamels starts a game for the Phillies, I honestly think it's his last one.
Transaction: The Phillippe Aumont era is officially over. Aumont elected free agency rather than accept his demotion back to the IronPigs after being designated for assignment.
