Luis Cessa pitched two perfect innings with a strikeout, Tyler Olson pitched an inning giving up a walk and he struck out one and Kirby Yates pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout. Nick Rumbelow pitched an inning giving up two hits and a run with a walk and Chasen Shreve pitched a perfect inning, striking out a batter.
Didi Gregorius had a hit, Hicks had two hits and Chase Headley had a hit. Rob Refsnyder had a hit and drew a walk and Chris Parmelee drew two walks. Hicks and Refsnyder hit a double and the Yankees were 0-7 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.
In the bottom of the seventh Chris Johnson hit an RBI single to give the Marlins a 1-0 lead and that would hold as no other runs were scored in the game. The Yankees are now 2-5 in the grapefruit league and will head to Port St. Lucie to take on the New York Mets on Wednesday afternoon.
