PHILADELPHIA — J.T. Realmuto hit a three-run homer, Hector Neris struck out Aaron Judge in a big spot and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Yankees 5-4.

Phillies starter Zach Eflin allowed two unearned runs and four hits, striking out five in four innings in his first start.

A beleaguered bullpen surrendered two runs the rest of the way on Gary Sanchez’s two-run homer off Nick Pivetta.

Deolis Guerra tossed a scoreless fifth for the win, and Pivetta went two innings.

Jose Alvarez got two outs in the eighth and Neris recorded the last four.
