The Phillies left two men on base in the first inning of last night’s 3-1 loss to the Yankees.
J.T. Realmuto made sure that history didn’t repeat itself tonight when he swatted this three-run homer off Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery.
REALMUTO! 3-run jack to take an early lead over the Yankees!

All eyes immediately shifted from the baseball bouncing in the empty left field seats to Bryce Harper, who, of course you just knew was going to give us something good after crossing the plate.
Would it be a “Sign J.T!” howl? Perhaps he would hand Realmuto a $50 bill? Nope.
Harper went with the air check signature move. Fabulous work right here. Points for the message and creativity. Well done all around.
