The New York Yankees trounce the Boston Red Sox 8-1

The New York Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday afternoon.  The game took place in

Tampa, Florida and the final score was 8-1 in favor of the Yankees.  Michael Pineda started for the

Yankees and was very good once again.  I would say that he pretty much locked up the fifth spot in

the rotation with that performance.  David Robertson got out of trouble in his 2/3 of an inning of

work.  Alfonso Soriano led the offense with a couple of hits and four RBI. 

Pineda picked up his second win of the spring.  He pitched 4 1/3 innings giving up four hits and no runs.  He didn't walk a batter and struck out five.  Robertson pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and striking out two, Shawn Kelley pitched a perfect inning and David Herndon gave up two hits and a run with a strikeout in his inning of work.  Fred Lewis gave up a hit in his one inning of work and Matt Daley gave up a hit in his inning of work. 

Brett Gardner had three hits, Derek Jeter had a hit and an RBI and Carlos Beltran had a hit.  Mark Teixeira had a hit, two RBI and drew two walks, Soriano had two hits and four RBI and Francisco Cervelli had two hits.  Brian Roberts had two hits, Kelly Johnson drew a walk and Zelous Wheeler had a hit.  Ichiro Suzuki had a hit and an RBI. 

Beltran and Wheeler each hit a double, Cervelli hit a triple and Soriano hit a homerun.  The Yankees were 6-14 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base.  Roberts had a stolen base.  The Yankees will play at Atlanta on Wednesday afternoon.  They will make the trip to Orlando at the Wide World Of Sports in Disney.
