Hello Zach Eflin and welcome to MLB.


The Phillies' 22-year-old rookie started walked to the hill for the first time as a Major League ballplayer and left before he completed three innings Tuesday, as the Phillies fell to the Blue Jays 11-3.


Eflingave up three homers, including a grand slam to Josh Donaldson. He walked three and allowed nine runs on nine hits. It's an afternoon he hopes he can soon forget.


It's also a road trip Philly wants to forget, after dropping four of five (and three in a row in a sweep by the Nationals).


The Blue Jays and Phillies will each travel south to Citizens Bank Park where the two will continue their home-and-home series in Philly Wednesday at 7:05. Jeremy Hellickson will get the call for the Phillies.
