The New York Yankees are World Series contenders, and the Philadelphia Phillies aren’t far from that level. They’ll host the Yankees Tuesday night in the second of a three-game series. First pitch is at 7:05 PM ET.
Luis Severino (11-2, 2.24 ERA) got the win in a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners at home in his last start. Over 5.2 innings, he allowed three runs on eight hits, striking out five and walking one. The 24-year-old righthander has never faced the Phillies before. He’s 4-2 in seven road starts this season with a 2.76 ERA.
Jake Arrieta (5-5, 3.42 ERA) took a no-decision in a 4-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in his last outing. Over six innings, he gave up three runs on four hits along with five strikeouts and a pair of walks. The 32-year-old righty is 3-1 in eight games (seven starts) against the Yankees in his career with a 3.83 ERA. The 2015 National League Cy Young winner is also 3-1 in seven home starts with a 2.08 ERA.
Heading into this series, the two teams have split their last 10 meetings. Eight of those meetings have gone over the posted total. This is their first meeting since 2015.
