Phillies 7
, Yankees 0
Game 63 - Sunday Afternoon, June 13th in Philadelphia
Record - 32-31, 2nd Place, 3 games behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies offense remained hot and Aaron Nola found his form in this enjoyable 7-0 win over the Yankees.

What It Means:  The game's easy, Harry.  After taking the two-game series from the Yankees, the Phillies next head to the West Coast for three games against the Dodgers followed by three games against the Giants.

What Happened:  Jean Segura was one of the offensive stars, collecting three hits, including a triple and driving in a pair of runs.  Andrew McCutchen had two doubles and two RBIs, and J.T. Realmuto drove in a pair as well.  All told, the Phillies offense had 12 hits, with nary a home run, going 6 for 13 with runners in scoring position.

Featured Card:  After struggling through most of May and his first two starts in June, Nola turned it around with 7 2/3 scoreless innings.  He allowed only three hits and a walk while striking out nine.  Connor Brogdon and Enyel De Los Santos recorded the final four outs for the combined shutout.
