Yankees Spring Training Game 25: Cervelli continues hot Spring

Yankees-logoNew York Yankees 3 — Boston Red Sox 2

The hottest player on the Yankees is Francisco Cervelli. He has been hitting the ball with authority and he did just that when visiting the Boston Red Sox. In the second inning, Francisco Cervelli started the inning with a bang. He put the Clay Buchholz pitch deep over the mini Monster to give the Yankees a one-run lead.

The fifth starter’s job looks like its Michael Pineda‘s to lose but David Phelps is still making a very strong showing to get it too. He stranded a runner on third in the first inning and would retire the next 12 batters before walking Daniel Nava in the fifth inning. He would erase that mistake with a double play to follow after. In his sixth inning, Phelps looked to show some signs of tiredness He would give up two singles and get two outs but Dustin Pedroia would hit a deep two-run double into the right center gap. David Ortiz would walk but Phelps would finish off the inning and his start.

In six innings, David Phelps allowed two runs on four hits while walking two and striking out three.

Ichiro Suzuki hit a two-run double in the fifth inning that gave the Yankees three runs on the night. The Yankees featured some strong bullpen after Phelps’ six strong innings. Chris Leroux pitched 1.1 perfect innings. Fred Lewis allowed a hit but got the two outs of his appearance and got one strikeout. Matt Daley finished off the one-run game with a perfect ninth inning.
