Spring Training Game Four: Phillies 4, Yankees 3

The Yankees dropped another game in Grapefruit League action, this time in Clearwater against the Philadelphia Phillies but regardless of the “L” there were a few bright spots for the team.

Ichiro Suzuki finished his day 3-3, J.R. Murphy who came in for Bobby Wilson finished 2-2 with a double and a two-run home run that had given the Yankees a 3-1 lead in the top of the seventh inning.

Jose Ramirez, who started for the Yankees, pitched two scoreless innings and didn’t give up a hit, Joba Chamberlain pitched a scoreless inning and struck out two batters and David Robertson also pitched a scoreless inning.

The Phillies scored their runs in the sixth and seventh innings – the runs in the seventh came thanks to two home runs off Yankees’ reliever Zach Nuding. Domonic Brown hit his solo shot to center field and Tommy Joseph hit his – a two-run shot – into the tiki bar in left field of Bright House Field.

It is the Phillies’ first win of the Spring and the loss dropped the Yankees’ spring record to 1-3.

The Yankees will be back in Tampa tomorrow to face the Baltimore Orioles at Steinbrenner Field.

    I know it's only ST but the Yankees had to be impressed with J.R. Murphy today, a HR and Double in 2 AB's.
