The Yankees lose to Toronto 7-5 as Garcia leaves after being hit on the hand

The New York Yankees lost to the Toronto Blue Jays by the score of 7-5 on Wednesday afternoon. The game was in Dunedin, Florida. Freddy Garcia started and pitched ok, it was his worst start but he was pitching so good that wasn’t hard to do. Manny Banuelos, the top pitching prospect had his worst game by far. Curtis Granderson had a couple of hits. 
Garcia pitched three innings giving up four hits and two runs. He walked one and struck out three. Garcia left his start early due to being hit on the hand. He did go for X-rays and they came back negative. Cory Wade pitched one inning giving up a hit and a run with two strikeouts, Banuelos pitched an inning giving up three hits and four runs with two walks and a strikeout and D.J. Mitchell pitched three perfect innings with four strikeouts. Mitchell continues to impress as he looks for a final spot in the bullpen or at least to be the first guy called up if a need arises in the rotation.

The Yankees for the first time this spring played most of their regular lineup. Derek Jeter had a hit, Doug Bernier had a hit and two RBI and Granderson had two hits and an RBI. DeWayne Wise had two hits and two RBI, Robinson Cano had a walk and Corban Joseph had a hit. Mark Teixeira had a hit, Cole Garner had a hit and Eric Chavez had a hit. Jayson Nix and Francisco Cervelli each had a hit.

Granderson had two doubles, Cervelli, Bernier and Garner each had a double. The Yankees were 2-11 with runners in scoring position and they left eight men on base. Wise had a stolen base in the game.

The Yankees record on the spring now drops to 5-8. They will play at the Nationals in Viera on Thursday afternoon.
