Yankees Defeat Astros with Regular lineup

The New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros tonight by the score of 4-1. Joe Girardi has said recently that the real competition for the 5th starters spot is starting now. Phil Hughes must of been listening loud and clear because he had his best performance of the spring. He came on in relief pitching 4 innings of shutout ball, he allowed 3 hits with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. A.J. Burnett got the start and was wild. He has had 10 days off in between starts because of a couple of rainouts. He pitched 2 1/3 giving up 2 hits and 1 run with 4 walks and 2 strikeouts. Here is how the rest of the team did. Zack Segovia came on in relief of Burnett and pitched 1 2/3 perfect innings with 2 strikeouts. Mariano Rivera saw his first action of the spring and gave up a hit and a walk in 1 inning but 0 runs. He also struck out a batter. On offense Mark Teixeira had a solo homerun and Derek Jeter had a hit. Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano each had a hit and Jorge Posada had a couple of hits. Nick Swisher had a hit and rbi and Brett Gardner also had a hit. The Yankees will take on the Phillies tomorrow in Clearwater at 1:05PM. Andy Pettitte will make his first start and Joba Chamberlain is scheduled to come on in relief.
