The Phillies beat the Yanks yesterday in Clearwater 5-3, and the big story was Zack Eflin.
He started and pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowing no runs with good looking stuff as he continues his comeback from knee surgery last season..
Second baseman Jean Segura launched a solo shot to center field to make it 1-0.
In the same inning, Bryson Stott continued his torrid streak, knocking a single. Former first overall pick Mickey Moniak hit a standup double to center, scoring Stott for the 2-0 lead.
New Phillie Nick Castellanos came up to bat and singled a line drive to left that then scored Moniak.
Things really heated up when the reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper hit a two-run home run to right center field to increase their lead to 5-0 in the fifth.
