TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., YES Network and MLB Network
WEATHER: It’s a bright and sunny day, but it’s also pretty hot outside, so the roof is closed.
UMPIRES: HP Angel Hernandez, 1B Ed Rapuano, 2B Laz Diaz, 3B Ed Hickox
FAMILIAR FACES: Yesterday the Yankees purchased the contract of Austin Kearns, officially adding the short-term Yankees outfielder to their Opening Day roster. The Marlins also have former Yankees prospect Mike Dunn in their bullpen, and they still have Chad Gaudin in camp on a minor league deal.
UPCOMING PITCHERS: The Yankees will face Carlos Zambrano tomorrow, then they’ll wrap up spring training by facing Mike Pelfrey on Tuesday and Dillon Gee on Wednesday. They have a workout at Tropicana Field on Thursday’s off day and open the season Friday against James Shields.
DONE THIS BEFORE: The Yankees last played stadium-opening road exhibitions in 2000 when they traveled to Houston to open Enron Field (now Minute Maid Park).
UPDATE, 1:13 p.m.: First pitch is a Jeter double to right.
UPDATE, 1:16 p.m.: Cano breaks his bat and still hits a sac fly to medium center field. It’s 1-0 Yankees after three batters and two outs.
UPDATE, 1:31 p.m.: Two-out RBI single by Stanton pulls the Marlins even in the second inning.
UPDATE, 1:43 p.m.: Solo homer by Gaby Sanchez puts the Marlins ahead 2-1 in the second.
UPDATE, 1:52 p.m.: Another Marlins run scores on a couple of singles and a couple of ground outs. It’s 3-1 at the end of two.
UPDATE, 2:28 p.m.: Three-run fifth inning for the Yankees, with Raul Ibanez connecting on the big hit, a sharp double to the wall in left-center.
UPDATE, 2:29 p.m.: Make that a four-run fifth, Robinson Cano just double in a run.
UPDATE, 2:32 p.m.: And an RBI single by Rodriguez. It’s 6-3 Yankees.
UPDATE, 2:44 p.m.: Maybe this is why Rivera never makes road trips in spring training. He just allowed a spring training earned run for the first time since 2008.
UPDATE, 2:47 p.m.: Yankees just announced that they’ve singed RHP Jason Bulger to a minor league deal and he’ll report to Scranton.
