If only these games counted.
After 8 games, the Yanks are 7-1 in spring training after beating Baltimore 8-1 tonight.
Matt Holliday, Greg Bird and Billy McKinney homered.
After missing all of last year due to injury, Bird’s power surge (2 HR the other day, another today, a 2-run blast) is very encouraging.
McKinney, who doubled the other day, had a 2-run HR and an RBI double tonight.
Gary Sanchez had two hits, inc. a double, and an RBI.
Top prospect Gleyber Torres had another hit and is 5 for 7 this spring.
Jorge Mateo had a double, rbi and an SB.
Miguel Andujar had a single to continue his hot spring.
Kyle Higashioka had a double, walk, and scored a run.
Yankees’ pitchers combined on a two-hitter with 10 K.
I think we all can be encouraged from what we’ve seen, esp. by the prospects.
Warren 3 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 walk, 3 K. Gave up HR.
