TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., YES Network

WEATHER: A few clouds, but still sunny and nice. Temperatures in the upper 60s, creeping into the 70s.

UMPIRES: HP Andy Fletcher, 1B Eric Cooper, 2B Marty Foster, 3B Mark Carlson

ON THE LINE: Back-to-back in the Yankees lineup are Marcus Thames and Jamie Hoffmann, the top candidates for the last spot on the bench. Neither has hit especially well this spring. It would be best if those two were still in the game when the Tigers left-handed relievers get on the mound.

UPDATE, 1:37 p.m.: Wow. Marcus Thames just broke his bat at the handle and sent the bulk of it into shallow left field. The ball didn’t get past third base. Most of the bat wound up in the outfield. It was a foul ball, and Thames struck out on the next pitch, smacking his bat into the bottom of his shoe when strike three was called.

UPDATE, 1:51 p.m.: Great play by Francisco Cervelli. And he gets a tap on the head from CC.

UPDATE, 2:00 p.m.: Alex Rodriguez crushed that ball. Yowza.

UPDATE, 256 p.m.: After walking Miguel Cabrera here in the sixth, CC Sabathia is out and Jonathan Albaladejo is in. Sabathia leaves with two men on base, but he looked good this afternoon.
