The New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox tonight in Tampa 7-1. AJ Burnett got the start and was good pitching 5 2/3 innings, giving up 1 run on 3 hits with 4k. MO pitched a 1-2-3 inning on 16 pitches. Jon Albaladejo faced one batter and got him out on a groundball. Damaso Marte pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up 1 hit, 1 walk and 1k, 0 runs and Edwar Ramirez closed it out with 1 1/3 innings, 0 runs, 1 hit and 2k. Austin Jackson hit a grandslam in the 8th inning when the Yankees scored 6 times. Tim Wakefield had the knuckler really knuckling and they couldn't get much going off of him. Johnny Damon was 1-3 with a rbi, Angel Berroa was 1-1 with a rbi. Derek Jeter was 1-2 with a walk, Hideki Matsui had a rbi. Robinson Cano was 1-3. Brett Gardner had a triple and run scored with his speed as he beat a throw to home and Melky Cabrera had a walk in his only at bat. Ramiro Pena who is in the mix for the utility role was 1-1. The Yankees have an off day tomorrow and will be back at it on Thursday when they face the Phillies with Joba Chamberlain on the mound. Austin Jackson was reassigned to minor league camp after the game along with Eduardo Nunez, Juan Miranda was optioned down. The Yankees are down to 39 players in camp now. Thanks to Peter Abraham for having that information on his blog and go check him out at http://yankees.lhblogs.com to see comments about Austin Jackson as Reggie Jackson and Joe Girardi had high praise for him. He ended up hitting 333 with 3 hr, 10 rbi a double and triple. He will be the AAA cf and if he does well we could see him in September, I will be watching him closely all season.
