Cody Carroll gave up a game-tying HR in the top of the ninth when the Yanks were one strike away from winning, but Miguel Andujar hit a two-out, two-strike HR in the bottom of the ninth to win the game for the Yanks, 4-3, over the Phillies.
The win puts the Yanks’ spring training record at 4-0.
After Sonny Gray pitched two scoreless innings, the Phils got a run in the third off of Yanks’ prospect Chance Adams. Maybe Adams needs to work on his move, because the Phils stole two bases off him that inning. Gary Sanchez did pick a runner off of second to bail out Adams. Sanchez had a double in the game.
The Yanks’ Ben Heller hit a batter with the bases loaded in the fifth to put the Phils up 2-0.
The Yanks cut it to 2-1 in the bottom of the fifth when, with two out, Brandon Drury walked, Billy McKinney reached on an error, and Tyler Wade singled in a run.
The Yanks tied it in the seventh. With two out, Drury tripled and Andujar doubled him home.
The Yanks went up 3-2 in the eighth. With one out, Erik Kratz and Tyler Austin both walked and Jorge Saez singled in a run, with Austin being thrown out at the plate.
That set the stage for the ninth, with Scott Kingery tying it up for the Phils with his HR, only to see Andujar win the game for the Yanks with his walk-off HR in the bottom of the ninth.
It wasn’t a good night for Giancarlo Stanton, who struck out all three times up.
Andujar was 2 for 2, double, HR, 2 RBI.
