New York Yankees lose 4-3 to the Jays

The New York Yankees lost to the Toronto Blue Jays tonight by the score of 4-3. CC Sabathia made the start and wasn’t great but he wasn’t bad either. Dave Robertson pitched a scoreless inning and two of the lefties looking to lock down the second lefty bullpen spot appeared. Brett Gardner had two hits and an RBI. The offense as a whole didn’t do too much. 
Sabathia pitched six innings giving up three runs on six hits. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out five. Robertson pitched an inning walking one and striking out another. Cesar Cabral pitched an inning giving up a hit and a run with a walk, Clay Rapada pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout.

Derek Jeter had a hit, Mark Teixeira had a hit and Bill Hall drew a walk. Alex Rodriguez had a hit, Raul Ibanez drew a walk and Russell Martin had a hit and drew a walk. Andruw Jones had a hit, Eduardo Nunez had a hit, RBI and a walk and Gardner had two hits and an RBI. Justin Maxwell had an RBI. Teixeira and Rodriguez each had a double. The Yankees were 3-11 with runners in scoring position and they left seven men on base. Gardner and Dickerson each had a stolen base and Maxwell made a throwing error.

The Yankees are now 13-10 in the grapefruit league. They will face the Atlanta Braves o n Wednesday afternoon in Orlando, Florida. The Yankees made Curtis Grander son a late scratch from the lineup. He was having soreness in his elbow and they sent him for a precautionary MRI. Joba Chamberlain met with the media for the first time since his injury. The guys with minor injuries such as Jeter, Nick Swisher, Robertson all seem to be progressing well. They should all be ready for Opening Day next week.
