Yanks Recap and Some Notes

The New York Yankees defeated the Toronto Blue Jays this evening by the score of 5-3. Sergio Mitre got the start and looked very good. He pitched 6 innings giving up 2 runs on 3 hits with 0 walks and 5 strikeouts. He gave up a 2 run homerun in the 4th inning, that inning his pitches were up but that is a very good outing. Damaso Marte pitched a inning giving up a hit, run and walk. Mariano Rivera pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout and Boone Logan got the save with a scoreless inning. He allowed a walk and had a strikeout. He is trying to make the team as the second lefty and if Aceves can't go and starts on the DL his chances look pretty good. Derek Jeter was 2-3 tonight with a walk, Nick Johnson was 1-4 with a rbi. Marcus Thames was 1-4 and Alex Rodriguez was 2-3 with a walk. Randy Winn and Ramiro Pena were both 1-4 with a rbi. Francisco Cervelli also had a hit. The Yankees will play the Minnesota Twins tomorrow afternoon at 1 on the yes network. Here are some postgame notes from tonights game: The Yankees assigned Jon Weber and David Winfree to minor league camp after the game. Weber hit 483 this spring and is tied for the team lead with 4 doubles. He was definitely the nice story of camp. He is 32 years old and never made the major leagues. He had this to say "It was the best time in my life, in my career, that I have ever had. I made it to the final week with the New York Yankees." Girardi said he did everything that he could and opened up some eyes. Mark Teixeira was at camp today and reported no swelling of his elbow. That was great news for the Yankees as he got hit hard last night. Alfredo Aceves was also feeling better today and there is a chance he will play catch tomorrow. The decision on if Phil Hughes will start in the minors and come up when they need a 5th starter or just start in the majors is coming soon. Girardi said "We should have that for you shortly. I think we are just about done with that." Joba Chamberlain probably won't pitch in back to back games this spring. The Yankees only have 4 more games.
