It’s raining at Knology Park. Not drizzling, raining. Yet they have started the game up again. Every starter for the Yankees is out except Shelley Duncan and Bernie Castro.
Phil Hughes threw 30 pitches under cover to complete his day.
UPDATE: Kei Igawa is pitching for the Yankees. Scott Patterson pitched the second inning. Igawa worked a 1-2-3 third. Toronto replaced its entire lineup except for Frank Thomas.
I’m not going to live blog this game. Not much point with all the AAA players on the field. I’ll keep you posted with any important news.
Such as this: Shelley Duncan just singled to center to drive in Morgan Ensberg. The big boy is 6 for 9 this spring with eight RBI. Yankees lead 2-0.
UPDATE: Now Shelley is out of the game, too, replaced by Collin Curtis.
UPDATE: Facing a AAA lineup, Kei Igawa was dominating, six up and six down. 18 pitches/13 strikes. Two strikeouts. International League, watch out.
Seriously, the K-Man needed a boost and this should provide it.
UPDATE: Now the game has been suspended again. It’s the top of the sixth, 2-0 Yankees. Toronto doesn’t have a hit.
They’re not bothering with the tarp. This should be it.
