MLB: Yankees humiliated in Philly in this summary of National games
The New York Yankees offense was silenced Sunday as the Philadelphia Phillies posted a convincing 7-0 win.
Aaron Nola is the main actor in the Bronx Bombers batting nightmare. The starting pitcher limited his rivals to three hits and one walk in seven and two-thirds innings. He ended his day with nine strikeouts.
The Yankees only got one more hit at the expense of Enyel De Los Santos in the ninth inning, but Gio Urshela cut through the air for the last out of the game.
Domingo German had an exit opposite Nola as he was responsible for the Phillies’ seven points in just four and a third innings. He left the mound with 10 hits to his record.
JT Realmuto, Jean Segura and Andrew McCutchen each produced two runs in the victory for the Phillies.
A grand slam for Tatis fils
Fernando Tatis Jr. took over the New York Mets with a grand slam to lead the San Diego Padres to a 7-3 victory.

The Padres filled the cushions in the seventh inning as they trailed 2-1 following a Jose Peraza homerun. Author of a long ball in the first inning, Tommy Pham allowed his team to create a tie with a walk.
The cushions were still crowded when Tatis Jr. showed up at the plate. He started at the expense of Jacob Barnes and his 19th long ball of the season gave the Padres control of the game 6-2. Manny Machado followed by capping a six-point run for the Padres with a homeroom as well.
The Dodgers played with fire
Walker Buehler went unbeaten, Mookie Betts homed and scored three runs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers held off the Texas Rangers by a score of 5-3.
Trailing 5-0, the Rangers netted three runs in the ninth inning and filled the trails without a putout, but they couldn’t take advantage of it.
Zach McKinstry hit a two-run double and had three hits in as many times at home. Gavin Lux added a one-run double for the Dodgers, who posted a fifth win in their last six outings.
The Los Angeles roster approached a game with the San Francisco Giants and the top of the National West section.
After Buehler (6-0) survived a grueling first inning, he gave up zero runs and five hits in six innings. He hasn’t seen defeat since September 2019, showing a 10-0 record in 28 appearances at the mound.
Kenley Jansen ultimately closed the books in the ninth inning and recorded a 15th save this season for the Dodgers.
Dane Dunning (2-5) allowed four runs, seven hits and two walks in four innings of work for the Rangers, who have lost 14 of their last 17 games.
Jason Martin and Isiah Kiner-Falefa produced a run in the ninth inning at the expense of reliever Phil Bickford. The Rangers have avoided being shut down for an eighth time this season.
Jansen arrived in relief and allowed Willie Calhoun a one-run single on his first pitch before the Rangers filled in the goals. The Dodgers stopper forced two opponents to retreat on a candle and forced Nick Solak to retreat on a ground.
The Rangers ended their 16-game losing streak by winning on Saturday. They also have the worst record for the Majors in interleague games over the past two seasons (8-25).
Davies takes charge of the Cardinals
Zach Davies gave just two hits until the seventh inning, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 2-0 shutout victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Cubs swept that three-game streak and registered a fifth straight win. The Chicago team have won 15 of their last 20 outings and have remained tied with the Milwaukee Brewers for the top of the National Center section.
The Cubs have won their last six games at Wrigley Field and nine of their last 10.
Anthony Rizzo was the author of the only RBI of the clash.
The Cardinals suffered a third straight loss and have lost 11 of their last 13 games. They slipped under the .500 mark (32-33).
Davies (4-3) struck out six batters and walked two in six and two-thirds innings on the mound. He won a second straight start.
The Cubs right-hander struck out the first 13 hitters he faced before Tyler O’Neill hit a single. O’Neill wanted to stretch his doubles single, but third baseman Patrick Wisdom pinned him down.
The Cardinals threatened in the seventh inning by placing runners in the first and second pillows, but Ryan Tepera forced Yadier Molina to retire in an optional to end the inning.
Tepera blanked his opponents in the eighth inning and Craig Kimbrel struck out three hitters in the ninth to get an 18th save of 20 chances for the Cubs.
Carlos Martinez (3-7) conceded two unearned runs and four hits in seven innings for the Cardinals. He suffered a third loss in a row.
