WEATHER: Another bright and sunny day in Florida for the Yankees final road game of the spring.
UMPIRES: There are four umpires, but the only names listed are 1B Jerry Crawford and 2B Damien Beal.
ON THE LINE: We could see a few relievers pitch in their second straight game and Marcus Thames is getting another chance against a left-handed starter.
UPDATE, 1:25 p.m.: Lead-off double by Granderson and an RBI single by Johnson gave the Yankees an early lead, then a two-out RBI single by Cano built that lead to 2-0. By the way, Pilittere put a charge in the ball in his first at-bat as the clean-up hitter, flying out to the track in center.
UPDATE, 1:55 p.m.: Mark Teixeira just roped a double off the top of the wall in left. By the way, Curtis Granderson is 2-for-2 off the lefty Tallet this afternoon. He seems to have gotten some things worked out this spring.
UPDATE 1:57 p.m.: INF Kevin Russo and C Jose Gil were late additions from minor league camp. They’re basically replacing Laird and Posada. Also, it seems the Blue Jays gave out the wrong lineup. Jose Molina is in the game for Toronto.
UPDATE, 2:49 p.m.: It’s been a pretty slow game in a good way. A.J. Burnett is out after allowing tw runs through 4.2 innings. He was solid for his last spring training tune-up. Royce Ring is on to face Adam Lind with one out in the fifth.
UPDATE, 2:52 p.m.: Ring struck out Lind swinging. I don’t think he’ll make the team, but Ring’s pitched pretty well except for one bad inning this spring. It’s 3-2 Yankees heading into the top of the sixth.
UPDATE, 3:02 p.m.: Ramiro Pena showing the power that’s made him famous. He just doubled off the high wall in right field, scoring a run giving the Yankees a 4-2 lead.
UPDATE, 3:10 p.m.: Edwin Encarnacion is having an ugly day at third. He just made his second error, leading to the fifth Yankees run.
Chan Ho Park is now pitching. Gardner is in center. Winn is in left. Brewer is in right. Russo is at second. Ibarra is at short. Miranda is at first.
