Game 77 - 1982 Donruss #189 Sparky Lyle

Yankees 6, Phillies 0
Game 77 - Tuesday Night, June 26th in Philadelphia
Record - 41-36, 2nd place, 3 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Jake Arrieta's shaky outing, a dominant pitching performance from Luis Severino and a crucial error from Cesar Hernandez in the third inning led to this 6-0 Yankees win.

What It Means:  The Phillies will try to avoid the three-game sweep on Wednesday night.

What Happened:  Hernandez should have turned an inning-ended double play, but he threw wide to Scott Kingery and three unearned runs ultimately scored.  Arrieta also allowed home runs to Austin Hicks and Didi Gregorius.  Severino struck out 9 in his outing with the Phillies going 0 for 4 with runners in scoring position.

Featured Card:  I'm sticking with the Sparky Lyle theme until the Phils can beat the Yankees.
