Ryan Howard put Philadelphia on the board with a fourth-inning single to score Freddy Galvis, and third baseman Cody Asche later put the Phillies ahead with a sacrifice fly.
"He did a lot of good things on the field," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said of Howard, who went 2-for-2. "He showed some good movement on the field, some range on some plays. He did a good job on a high throw over there at first base. He really moved around really well on the field, and he had some at-bats [in which] he squared some balls up. I liked him going to left field, opening up the field."
Yankees Up Next: New York will begin its 20th season at George M. Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday at 1:05 p.m. ET on MLB.TV, hosting the Phillies. Right-hander Nathan Eovaldi is scheduled to make his first appearance in pinstripes, with Philadelphia giving the nod to right-hander Kevin Slowey. The contest will mark Alex Rodriguez's first game action since the 2013 postseason.
