Yankees Beat Red Sox 5-2

Brett Gardner continued to wreak havoc on Spring Training teams as he began the game with an infield single that Stephen Drew could not charge and get. He has a hit in seven straight Grapefruit League games. I do not know if this was a sign of what is to come or not but Melky Mesa played center field today while Gardner led off and played left field. Interesting nonetheless. Gardner's average this spring is .563 just as an FYI.

Adam Warren looked good even with that monster home run that he allowed to Mike Napoli. Warren finished with a pitching line of 3 IP 1 H 1 R 1 BB 2 K's. Take out that home run and he looks as dominant as he ever has.

Jose Ramirez pitched 3 IP with 3 H 0 R 1 K. Chase Whitley, Preston Claiborne, and Josh Spence combined for the next 2 IP not allowing a hit and not allowing a run. Chase Whitley had the only strike out. Kelvin Perez finished the bottom of the 9th with a 2 BB's, 2 wild pitches, and a run scored.

The Yankees offense came from a Thomas Neal solo home run, the third RBI of the spring for JR Murphy, and a RBI for each of Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix. The Yankees would win the game 5-1 for their second consecutive Grapefruit League win.
