Yankees' Second Spring Training Game Report Card

Sean SerritellaCorrespondent IFebruary 26, 2009

This was the first New York Yankees game of the year that I watched on TV, as they beat the Tampa Bay Rays by a score of 5-1. The Yankees got a great pitching performance from some of their young hurlers.

 

A+ Jorge Posada

He went 2 -or-2 with one run scored, two RBI, and a home run. He also had a RBI double. That’s an A + performance.

A+ Phil Coke

Coke pitched two scoreless innings, giving up only one hit. He had a strike out and walked none.

A- Shelley Duncan

Duncan had one at-bat but made the most of it. He hit a three-run home run.

B+ Phil Hughes

He hit two batters but pitched two scoreless innings while striking out two.

C+ Brett Gardner

Gardner went 0-for-2, but threw out a runner at second base.

D Derek Jeter

Jeter went 0-for-3 and his average after two Spring Training games is .167.

F  J.B. Cox

Cox pitched one inning and gave up one earned run on three hits.

 

End thoughts: The Yankees have a great young bullpen that they will count on this year.
