Spring Training Game 3/25

The Yankees lost 9-5 to the Tigers.

Jeff Karstens struggled mightily today giving up 6 runs in 2 innings. This was his game to prove he deserved to pitch while other were injured. But he didnt have it today. Sean Henn followed him, also trying to win a spot, and also blew his shot. With Villone struggling this was a big day for him but he couldnt capitalize going 1.2 innings with 3 runs. He also had control problems, walking 3. Britton, Proctor, and Vizcaino all pitched one scoreless inning. Their was a very unexpected Eric Wordekemper sighting today as he pitched 1 inning. He got into trouble but didnt give up a run. For those of you who dont know Wordekemper is a lower level prospect who had a good year last year but was old for his league.

Offensively, their were really no standout days. Giambi went 2 for 2 with a rbi. Their were a few offensive player surprises also with Marcos Vechionacci and Austin Jackson getting some at bats. Vech went 0-2 but Jackson went 1 for 2 with an rbi double and a run.
