The Phillies First Trip to the New Yankee Stadium

Now that Interleague play is par for the course, the Phillies make the trip uptown every few years. However, this is the first time they've come to visit as the defending WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS! Both teams were riding serious winning streaks and showing impressive power. The Phillies lead the NL in home runs, the Yankees lead the AL in home runs and thus far this season, new Yankee Stadium is leading the universe in Home Runs allowed! Made for a tremendously competitive and exciting three days!
