He’ll attempt to stay perfect in the month as the Phillies try to avoid being swept by the New York Yankees.

The teams meet Wednesday night in the finale of a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

The Phillies’ bats have been quieted by the Yankees’ staff in the first two games of the set. Philadelphia Byron Murphy Jersey , now on a three-game losing streak, was shut out on Tuesday night and has just two runs on nine hits in the series.

“They beat us pretty good,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler told reporters after Tuesday night’s 6-0 loss. “We just have to wear it and get ready for (Wednesday).”

The Yankees, meanwhile, have 10 runs on 17 hits in the pair of games against the Phillies and have bounced back with two wins after getting swept by the Tampa Bay Rays over the weekend.

Eflin (5-2, 3.44 ERA) will try to cool off the Yankees, who led the majors in OPS and home runs as of Tuesday.

Eflin is 4-0 in four June starts. He has a 2.28 ERA and .594 opponent OPS with 22 strikeouts and only four walks over that span (23 2/3 innings). Most recently, Eflin gave up two runs in five innings against the Washington Nationals last Friday.

“Those are situations I’ve been working on the past couple years Andy Isabella Jersey , being able to put guys away when I need to,” Eflin, who worked around six hits in the start, told MLB.com “Being able to do that and overcome that was huge. Looking forward to continuing that and getting deeper into games.”

Eflin will face the Yankees for the first time in his career on Wednesday,

The Yankees will send Luis Cessa (0-0, 3.00) to the mound for his first start of the season. Cessa spent two months on the disabled list this season with a strained oblique, but the 26-year-old has made four appearances out of New York’s bullpen. He pitched last Friday for the first time since April 17 and tossed two scoreless innings against the Rays.

“We have a lot of confidence in Cessa, that is the kind of role going into the season that we envisioned him in — the fifth Zach Allen Jersey , sixth starter and bullpen guy,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone told the New York Post last week. “We feel he is built up enough and on line to be the best option that day.”

Boone noted that Cessa will be able to throw 70-80 pitches during his Wednesday start. Cessa has allowed two earned runs in six innings for the Yankees this season, and he is 2-7 with a 4.54 ERA in 14 career major league starts. He has never faced the Phillies.

Cessa could get more backing from a red-hot Giancarlo Stanton. The Yankees left fielder and 2017 National League MVP has nine hits over his last three games and is 4-for-8 so far in the series. Stanton is hitting .459 with a 1.335 OPS, three homers, four doubles and nine RBIs over his last nine contests.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Odell Beckham Jr.’s extended absence may have finally gotten to Browns coach Freddie Kitchens.After staunchly defending the superstar wide receiver’s decision to skip nearly all of Cleveland’s voluntary practices since joining the team, Kitchens had a different tone Thursday when asked about Beckham’s nonattendance.“I just want to see him,” Kitchens said when asked what he wants to see out of Beckham at next week’s mandatory minicamp.What did Beckham miss while away the past three weeks?“A lot Hakeem Butler Jersey ,” Kitchens quipped. “The offense.”Beckham, who was acquired March 12 in a blockbuster trade from the New York Giants, skipped all but one day of Cleveland’s voluntary practices (OTAs) over the past month.Other than being at his introductory news conference on April 1 or his appearance two weeks ago at one of the 10 practice sessions, the 26-year-old Beckham has not been around.So while Kitchens installed a new offense and quarterback Baker Mayfield threw passes to second- and third-stringers — Jarvis Landry has been held out of workouts with an unspecified injury — Beckham has been training in Los Angeles, dressing for the Met Gala in New York, attending the Formula One race in Monaco and getting a customized, orange Rolls Royce.In the past, Kitchens defended Beckham’s decision Chris Lindstrom Jersey , saying he was confident the three-time Pro Bowler receiver would stay in shape and be ready when the season starts.Kitchens may still feel that way, but given the chance he didn’t express those sentiments this time, perhaps to send a message to Beckham or set a tone for next week’s workouts.Beckham isn’t the only player who has missed practice, but he could have changed some of the outside perceptions about him being selfish by joining his new teammates and Kitchens, who has never been a head coach and is getting his first crack at the highest level.Running back Duke Johnson has missed the entire offseason program after requesting a trade.Kitchens said he expects Johnson to return next week.“It’s mandatory,” Kitchens said. “He should be here.”Wide receiver Antonio Callaway also missed Thursday’s practice along with safety Damarious Randall and tight end David Njoku.Kitchens is excited about having his full squad together soon.“It’ll be nice to have everybody here and get them some work and get everybody ready to compete during training camp when we’re going to start forming the Cleveland Browns,” Kitchens said.NOTES: Landry is not expected to practice next week, Kitchens said. Landry did not undergo any surgeries during the offseason and Kitchens said the decision to keep him out is “more precautionary than anything.” … Mayfield did not speak to reporters http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jahlani-tavai-jersey , but is expected to have a media session during his youth football camp Saturday at Mayfield High School in Mayfield Village, Ohio.
