The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox play to a 4-4 tie

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox played to a 4-4 tie tonight in Fort Myers, Florida. The teams played nine innings and then the Yankees quit saying they had no more pitchers. The Red Sox manager was not too happy wanting to play at least another inning. This just added another chapter in the rivalry. Bobby Valentine called the Yankees disingenuous. Adam Warren started for the Yankees and pitched really well. He will be in AAA this year but may be one of the first guys called up if a need arises. Dellin Betances was a bit wild but didn’t give up a hit or a run. The Yankees offense got an RBI triple from Curtis Granderson. Andruw Jones had an RBI single.
Warren pitched four innings giving up two hits and no runs. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out three. Betances pitched three scoreless and hitless innings but did walk three batters. He also struck out four batters, Cory Wade pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up four hits and three runs and Juan Cedeno pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up one hit and one run with a strikeout. George Kontos got charged with a blown save as he pitched one inning. He gave up one hit and struck out two batters.

Brett Gardner had a hit, Granderson had a hit, RBI and a walk and Jones had a hit and an RBI. Eric Chavez had a hit, Brandon Laird had a hit and Jose Gil had a hit. Gustavo Molina had a hit, Doug Bernier had two hits and two RBI along with a very good defensive play. Laird and Bernier each had a double and Granderson had a triple. The Yankees were 3-6 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base. Chavez and Jones were both picked off in the game.

The Yankees record on the spring is 10-9 and this was their first tie of the spring. The Yankees will play a split squad game tomorrow. They will play at home against the Minnesota Twins and on the road against the Philadelphia Phillies.
