Phillies win 6-1; World Series Game 1 @NYY: first pitch 7:57pm EST
Phillies win Game 1, 6-1, the pitching was tight tight tight!
…The Series is a fascinating matchup of two teams separated by just over 100 miles of New Jersey Turnpike and many more miles of history. The Yankees are seeking the 27th championship in franchise history. The Phillies are chasing their third, but are trying to become the first repeat champions since the 2000 Yankees.
Both teams have power. The Yankees led the majors with 244 home runs, while the Phillies were second with 224. It is the first time the top slugging teams have met in the Series since the Yankees and Cardinals in 1926….
