The New York Yankees defeat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0

The New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday afternoon.  It was an

exhibition game that took place at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida.  The Yankees had their top

three starters all pitching in the game.  CC Sabathia started followed by Hiroki Kuroda and then

finally by Masahiro Tanaka.  They all pitched well and Derek Jeter played in his second game. 

The final score was 4-0 and the Yankees won the game.  CC Sabathia started and pitched two scoreless innings.  He gave up two hits and struck out one.  Kuroda pitched two innings and only threw 17 pitches.  He gave up a hit and struck out two batters.  He was so effective that he had to throw more in the bullpen after his outing.  Tanaka pitched two scoreless innings giving up two hits.  He struck out three and was impressive for his first outing.  Dellin Betances pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up a walk and Cesar Cabral pitched 1 1/3 innings striking out two. 

Brett Gardner had a hit, Jeter drew a walk and reached on an error and Dean Anna had a hit.  Brian McCann had a hit and drew two walks, Francisco Cervelli had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk and John Ryan Murphy drew a walk.  Kelly Johnson drew a walk, Yangervis Solarte drew a walk and Ichiro Suzuki had a hit and an RBI.  Adonis Garcia had a hit and two RBI, Corban Joseph had a hit and Antoan Richardson had a hit. 

McCann hit a double, the Yankees were 3-13 with runners in scoring position and left ten men on base.  Anna had a stolen base and Joseph was caught stealing.  Anna committed an error.  The Yankees will travel to Dunedin on Sunday to face the Toronto Blue Jays.  The Yankees starter will be Vidal Nuno.
