New York Yankees lose 3-1 to the Toronto Blue Jays

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon.  The final

score was 3-1 and the game took place at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida.  Michael Pineda

started for most likely the last time before being named the fifth starter.  He has had a great spring

and showed that he is healthy.  He pitched pretty well on Sunday but not as great as he has been. 

The offense was led by Brett Gardner and Carlos Beltran who each had two hits. 

Pineda pitched six innings giving up three runs, two of them earned.  He gave up six hits with no walks and two strikeouts.  Chris Leroux retired the only batter that he faced, Cesar Cabral gave up a hit and walked two without recording an out and Dellin Betances retired both batters that he faced, one by a strikeout.  Danny Burawa pitched a perfect inning and Jim Miller gave up a hit in a scoreless inning. 

Gardner had two hits, Beltran had two hits and Zelous Wheeler drew a walk.  Brian McCann had a hit, Antoan Richardson had a hit and Alfonso Soriano had a hit.  Ichiro Suzuki had a hit which was a double and Beltran hit a double.  The Yankees were 1-6 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Nunez and Pineda each committed an error.  Adonis Garcia had an outfield assist.  The Yankees will have an off day on Monday before completing their grapefruit schedule this week and leaving for Houston on Saturday.  The Yankees will begin the 2014 regular season on Tuesday April 1st in Houston.
