For the second night in a row, Maikel Franco racked up five RBIs for the Phillies, becoming the first Phillies player to record back-to-back games with five RBIs since the statistic was made official in 1920.
Behind Franco's continued torrid hitting, the Phillies were able to rack up the runs for the third game in a row, topping the Yankees 11-6 to take a 2-0 lead in the series and pick up their third straight win.
In the fourth, Cameron Rupp hit a two-run home run to left to tie the game at 3-3, and Franco followed that later in the inning with a three-run home run, his 10th of the season, to put the Phillies up 6-3.
The Yankees would score three in the fifth to tie the game yet again, but the Phillies would put together another big inning in the ninth.
Franco would strike again in the ninth, smacking a two-run double to regain the lead for the Phillies. Andres Blanco would rip a three-run triple later in the frame to put the Phillies up 11-6, as they picked up their third straight win.
