Game 78 - 2018 Chachi Phillies Phestival #8 Zach Eflin

Phillies 3, Yankees 0
Game 78 - Wednesday Night, June 27th in Philadelphia
Record - 42-36, 2nd place, 2 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Zach Eflin shut down the powerful Yankees offense with a dominant six-inning performance and Rhys Hoskins hit a three-run home run to lead the Phillies to this 3-0 victory.

What It Means:  Eflin's extremely impressive numbers for the month of June - 5-0, with a 1.76 ERA.  His performance helped the team avoid the sweep at the hand of the Yankees.

What Happened:  Eflin allowed four hits and struck out six on the way to his 6th win.  Seranthony Dominguez threw two perfect innings to lock down the win and earn his 5th save.

Featured Card:  I've officially run out of Eflin cards to feature, so I'm going to take the unusual step of featuring a custom card of his for the second time.  As suspected, Eflin was very nice during the recent Phillies Phestival, and he took the time to pose for a photo with my son Doug.
