Jean Segura hit a walk-off infield single in the bottom of the 10th inning to lead the host Philadelphia Phillies to an 8-7 win over the New York Yankees on Saturday.

It was the third straight walk-off win for the Phillies and the second consecutive for Segura, who had three hits.

Rougned Odor had two hits, including a home run, and Gary Sanchez also homered, singled and drove in two runs for the Yankees, who dropped their second straight. Brett Gardner tripled, singled, walked twice and knocked in one run.

Yankees starter Jameson Taillon was lifted after recording just one out on 34 pitches. Taillon gave up five hits and four runs, with one walk.

Aroldis Chapman (4-2) took the loss.

In the second, Sanchez lofted a solo homer and Gardner contributed an RBI triple to close the Yankees within 4-2.
