The New York Yankees were able to get two split squad games in today. Florida’s weather has caused two straight day of postponed games on Thursday and Friday.

Game 1: Yankees defeat Orioles, 5-3

Game Notes:

1. Javier Vazquez got the start for the Yankees. In three innings, Vazquez gave up two runs(HR to Ty Wiggington) and struck out two.

2. Alfredo Aceves came in relief of Vazquez. In four innings, Aceves gave up one run(HR to Garrett Atkins) and scattered three hits. Chamberlain, Hughes, Gaudin, and Mtire have struggled this season, making Ace an interesting candidate for the 5th stater’s role.

Spring Stats: 10 innings, 3 hits allowed, 1 earned runs, 5 strikeouts

3. David Robertson closed the game by striking out the side in the Top of the 9th inning.

4. Nick Johnson had an RBI Double in the win.

Game 2: Tigers defeat Yankees, 6-2.

Game Notes:

1. Chad Gaudin started this game. Gaudin yielded three earned runs in three innings.

2. Unfortunately, Sergio Mitre matched Gaudin’s stat line.

3. Ex-Yankee, Johnny Damon homered off Sergio Mitre.
