New York Yankees win third straight grapefruit league game

The New York Yankees won their third straight spring game on Sunday afternoon.  They defeated the Toronto Blue Jays by the score of 8-2 in Dunedin, Florida.  Vidal Nuno got the start and pitched ok in his couple innings of work.  Eduardo Nunez and Carlos Beltran hit back-to-back homeruns and John Ryan Murphy added a three run shot later in the game. 

Nuno pitched two innings giving up two hits and a run with no walks and three strikeouts.  Bryan Mitchell picked up the victory pitching two innings and giving up three hits with no runs.  He walked none and struck out three, Shane Greene pitched two innings giving up three hits and a run with a strikeout and Bruce Billings pitched an inning giving up a hit.  Fred Lewis pitched an inning giving up a hit and a walk with a strikeout and Matt Daley pitched a perfect inning with two strikeouts. 

Jacoby Ellsbury drew a walk, Nunez had a hit and two RBI and Solarte had two more hits.  He is hitting close to 900 as the early standout in camp.  Beltran had a hit and an RBI, Murphy had a hit and three RBI and Adonis Garcia had three hits.  Garcia has been a standout in camp also but he is an outfielder with no place to go.  Solarte could play third base and could be an intriguing case if he keeps it up.  Austin Romine had a hit and drew a walk, Gary Sanchez had a hit and Brendan Ryan had a hit.  Corban Joseph had an RBI, Dean Anna had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk and Ramon Flores had a hit. 

Garcia hit a double,Nunez, Beltran and Murphy each hit a homerun.  Nunez and Beltran went back-to-back.  The Yankees were 3-10 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base.  Garcia had a stolen base and Romine was caught stealing.  Nunez and Joseph each committed an error.  Garcia had an outfield assist.  The Yankees will be home in Tampa to take on the Washington Nationals on Monday afternoon.  Ivan Nova will get the start, Jeter will play in the game.
