Spring Training Game Nine: Yankees 10, Tigers 3

The seven-game losing streak is over. Everyone can stop panicking about the New York Yankees.

Of course, I’m kidding, no one was really panicking at all. As I’ve been saying for the past few weeks, it’s only Spring Training.

The good stuff:

  • Ivan Nova‘s performance – 2 IP, one hit and one strike out. He was also hitting 94 m.p.h. (according to some tweets I saw)
  • Brett Gardner‘s two hits and two stolen bases
  • Tyler Austin and Corban Joseph each had two RBI – not that those even count but it was still nice to see.
  • Chris Stewart who is one of the candidates for the starting catcher job hit a home run.
  • The Yankees had finished with 10 runs on 13 hits.
  • They only made one error.

The ‘bad’ stuff:

Tomorrow, the Yankees will travel to Fort Myers to take on the Boston Red Sox in JetBlue Park for a 1:35 p.m. start. The scheduled starters are Adam Warren and Ryan Dempster.

    I'm taking Nova with a grain of salt. He's always pitched well for the first couple of innings. I'll be more impressed when he can make it through 5 or 6. If he can do that, the Yanks are going to have a pretty solid pitching staff (including the bullpen).

    As I said earlier here. Nova pitched well but Fielder, Cabrera and V-Mart were not in the Tigers line up.

    I'm very impressed by Gardner so far after being basically out for all of the 2012 season. He could have a huge impact in 2013. Also, I would be nice IF Youkilis would get a hit sooner rather than later.
