The New York Yankees beat the Philadelphia Phillies behind more strong pitching

The New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday afternoon by the score of 3-2.  The game took place at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida.  Nathan Eovaldi and Chase Whitley both pitched well.  The offense had only five hits but it was good enough. 

Eovaldi pitched four innings giving up two hits and no runs.  He didn't walk a batter and struck out three.  Whitley pitched two perfect innings with a couple of strikeouts.  David Carpenter pitched an inning giving up two hits and two runs with a walk and a strikeout, Justin Wilson pitched an inning with a strikeout and Wilken Rodriguez saved his second game of the spring pitching a perfect inning with a strikeout. 

Jacoby Ellsbury had a hit, Slade Heathcott had a hit and an RBI and Brett Gardner had a hit.  Mark Teixeira drew a walk, Kyle Roller had a hit and Brian McCann had an RBI.  Chase Headley had a hit and an RBI, Alex Rodriguez drew a walk and Greg Bird drew a walk.  Didi Gregorius drew a walk, Ellsbury hit a triple and Headley hit a homerun.  The Yankees were 1-5 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base. 

In the first McCann hit a sacrifice fly to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the seventh Domonic Brown hit an RBI single to tie the game at one.  In the bottom of the seventh Headley hit a solo homerun giving the Yankees a 2-1 lead.  Heathcott hit an RBI single to make it 3-1 in the seventh and then in the eighth Andres Blanco hit an RBI groundout to make it a 3-2 game and that was the final score. 

The Yankees will have a rare off day on Monday and then play again on Tuesday night at home in Tampa against the Toronto Blue Jays.  CC Sabathia will make his spring debut in that game.
