Spring Game Three: Minnesota Twins 5, New York Yankees 4

AlexAnalyst IFebruary 27, 2009

The Minnesota Twins advanced to 3-0 on the spring with a 5-4 victory over the New York Yankees, yet it had little to do with the teams' main roster players. Scott Baker was the only pitcher to appear in the game, and the much awaited debut of third baseman Joe Crede was finally made.

On with the game notes...

Scott Baker will make the Opening Day start come April, and he's hoping it goes nothing like this spring debut. Baker went two innings and was rocked for six hits and three runs in the outing. It's still a little early to be worried.

Joe Crede made his debut in a Twins uniform, and in his first at-bat walked. Crede then hit into a double-play in the second plate appearance and ended his first game as a Twin with an 0-2 outing.

Delmon Young continued to hit. Young went 2-2 on the day with an RBI, and thus far has a .750 batting average. Meanwhile Jason Kubel launched his first homerun of the spring in his one plate appearance.

Out of the bullpen was Brian Duensing, Kevin Mulvey, Rob Delaney, and a few others. These are the key guys that could appear on the roster at some point in '09, and all fared well allowing no runs.
