Last night actually went better than I thought it would. The Phillies were in it nearly the entire game. They didn’t score more than two runs, but they only allowed four. Sometimes teams do that! Even good teams.
But the bottom line is they hung in there with the Yankees until almost the end. And tonight is a brand new game with nine full innings of chances for them to score more runs the Yankees. Let’s see who we’ve got.
Game two against the Yankees coming up from Citizens Bank Park! Here's our lineup. #BeBold— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) June 26, 2018

Okay, Jake. Jakey Jake. Jake Jake Jake Jake. This is the perfect game for you to turn it all around. This is the time, this is the moment, this is the hand of fate telling you what you need to do. Go out there and mow them down. Figuratively! With his pitching arm!
We have faith in you, Jake. Now go out there and get some outs.
