The New York Yankees (3-2) suffered a 4-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies (1-4) on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.
New York fell behind early and could never get much going on offense as they were held to just one run on four hits.
DJ LeMahieu drove in the lone run with his first home run of the season in the ninth inning.
Domingo Germán surrendered four runs on four hits over 4 2/3 innings while striking out eight in his season debut. Two of the runs were charged to him after he left the game.
Michael King gave up four hits over 1 1/3 innings. Albert Abreu tossed two scoreless frames, while Jimmy Cordero fired a scoreless inning.
The Yankees will try to bounce back on Wednesday and win the series. Gerrit Cole will make his second start of the season. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. on the YES Network.
