New York Yankees defeat the Washington Nationals in ten innings

The New York Yankees beat the Washington Nationals in ten innings today by the score of 4-3. That wasn’t the news of the day though. Andy Pettitte signed a one year 2.5 million dollar minor league deal to return to the Yankees. There was also the news that Derek Jeter has a sore calf, but as usual he downplayed it and said it isn’t a big deal. It is never a dull moment around the Yankees.

CC Sabathia started the game and didn’t pitch too well. He wasn’t real bad but he just wasn’t sharp. Sabathia pitched three innings giving up six hits and three runs with one walk and two strikeouts. Rafael Soriano who has looked good all spring, pitched a perfect inning. Phil Hughes pitched really well in this game. He pitched four innings giving up three hits and he struck out three batters, Cesar Cabral pitched a perfect inning with a couple of strikeouts and Chase Whitley got the win pitching one inning and giving up a hit.

Curtis Granderson had a hit, Justin Maxwell had a hit and a walk and Robinson Cano had a hit and an RBI. Alex Rodriguez had a hit and two RBI, Mark Teixeira had two walks and Brandon Laird had an RBI. Andruw Jones and Raul Ibanez each had a walk and Doug Bernier had a hit. Jayson Nix had a walk. Cano had a double and Rodriguez had a homerun. The Yankees were 1-9 with runners in scoring position and they left seven men on base. Maxwell had a stolen base and Nix was caught stealing. The Yankees will be home against the Astros on Saturday afternoon.
