Luis Severino pitched seven shutout innings and the Yankees hit two home runs en route to a 6-0 win over the Phillies on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park. >> Box score
Things to know about Tuesday's game
1) Severino bounced back from a more-medicore outing his last time out to shut down the Phillies for seven innings. He struck out nine batters and walked none while throwing 103 pitches. He now has a 2.10 ERA this season for the Yankees.
2) The Yankees hit well against Jake Arrieta, who has struggled as of late. Hicks blasted a home run on the third pitch of the game, his 11th of the season, while Gregorus led off the top of the fifth with a solo home run.
3) Adam Warren and Chasen Shreve combined to pitched two scoreless, hitless innings of relief to finish off the win for Severino and the Yankees.
4) Giancarlo Stanton contributed two hits, while Gleyber Torres had two hits and two RBI.
The Yankees win with one of the more complete all-around efforts in recent memory. The Yankees have played much better baseball since leaving Tampa -- where they were swept -- outscoring the Phillies 10-2 thus far in the series.
The Yanks received another stellar effort from Severino, who takes over the MLB lead for wins with 12. Severino was in control tonight throwing first-pitch strikes at will. Severino once again flashed dominant stuff striking out at least seven batters while allowing one walk or fewer for the ninth time this season.
As the Yankees received a shutout performance from its pitching staff, the offense was clicking after the third pitch of the ballgame courtesy of Hicks. The Yankees' center fielder now has 11 homers on the season, which is four short of his career-high, set last season. Hicks has been productive for much of the season (.805 OPS) and he's key to the Yankees success as they will continue to rely on him at the top of the batting order when Brett Gardner needs a day off.
