You can always rely on Philly fans to show up for games in rain or shine or even a pandemic.

On Thursday night, Yankees' manager Aaron Boone complained to the umpiring crew about an air horn that was going off outside the stadium. Boone was upset with the timing of the air horn.

"In the environment we are in, it's almost like a golf environment," said Boone in his post-game press conference. "I thought there was a timing element to it maybe. Obviously, I didn't necessarily think they would be able to do anything about it and didn't necessarily know who and where it was coming from."

The Phandemic Krew has been camped out behind Ashburn Alley doing their best to cheer the Phillies along during home games. A drum line showed up earlier in the series as well.

“Yeah, you can definitely hear them,” Phillies manager Joe Girardi said. “They’re nice and loud. Obviously I think everyone misses the fans. It’s nice to hear fans even though they’re not in the park. It just shows you how important baseball is to this town and their loyalty to us.”

J.T. Realmuto also said he enjoyed the Krew cheering them along.

Not only did the Yankees complain about the air horns and fans, they also had gripes with the Phillies announcers speaking "louder" when the Phillies were batting.

"I heard yesterday that their announcers were being really loud mid-pitch during JA and other guys' pitches and not doing the same for their team. It's kinda messed up that they're out there, but it is what it is."- Jordan Montgomery on the noise the past two nights pic.twitter.com/HQgifVTdBl

The Yankees split the four-game series against the Phillies, who welcome the Atlanta Braves for a weekend set.
