Lucas Luetge pitched an inning with a walk and a strikeout, Asher Wojciechowski pitched two innnings 

giving up a walk and Nick Nelson pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a hit and he struck out two.  Nick

one.  Glenn Otto pitched an inning giving up a walk and he struck out two.  

Mike Tauchman had a hit, Estevan Florial had a hit and Luke Voit drew a walk.  Anthony Seigler had a

hit, Chris Gittens drew a walk and Clint Frazier had a hit.  Thomas Milone had an RBI and drew a walk,

Hoy Jun Park had an RBI and drew a walk and Max McDowell had a hit and three RBI.  Tyler Wade 

had a hit, Armando Alvarez drew a walk and Wade and McDowell each hit a double.  The Yankees were

2-7 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.  Wade and Florial each had a stolen

base and Greg Allen committed an error.  

In the second Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit an RBI double to give the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead.  In the ninth Milone

drew an RBI walk, Park drew an RBI walk and McDowell hit a three-run double to give the Yankees a

5-1 lead and that would be the final score.  

The Yankees have won five straight spring games and will take on the Philadelphia Phillies from
