The New York Yankees defeated the Philadelphia Phillies by the score of 10-0 on Friday afternoon.  The game took place in Clearwater, Florida.  Michael Pineda started for the Yankees and pitched very well.  The game only lasted six innings because of rain.  Brendan Ryan had a couple of hits and Stephen Drew had three hits to lead the offense. 

Pineda pitched five innings giving up five hits and no runs.  He didn't walk a batter and he struck out five.  He recorded his second win of the spring. 

Brett Gardner had a hit and drew a walk, Chase Headley had a hit, Carlos Beltran had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk.  Mark Teixeira had a hit and an RBI, Brian McCann had a hit and Alex Rodriguez had a hit and drew a walk.  Eddy Rodriguez had a hit, Kyle Higashioka had a hit and Drew had three hits and two RBI.  Rob Refsnyder drew a walk, Chris Young had a hit and two RBI and Tyler Austin had a hit and three RBI.  Ryan had two hits, Drew, Young and Austin each hit a double and Ryan hit two doubles.  The Yankees were 7-15 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base. 

In the fifth a passed ball gave the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  Beltran hit an RBI single, Teixeira hit an RBI single and Drew hit a two run single and it was 5-0 Yankees.  Young hit a two run double to make it 7-0 with all the runs coming in the fifth inning.  In the sixth Austin hit a three run double to make it 10-0 and then the game ended with rain. 

The Yankees will take on the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday afternoon from George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida.  CC Sabathia was going to start but he will pitch in a minor league game and Scott Baker will be making the start.
