Kennedy, Mo Sharp

After Billy Traber finished Joba's inning, the Sandman came in for his one inning of work. He threw 13 pitches/8 strikes, striking out one batter and inducing two weak grounders. Looks like classic Mo. Ian Patrick Kennedy then came in to pitch his scheduled four innings, and unlike Joba, got threw all of them, pitching very well. He allowed two hits and walk, along with two strikeouts. Of his ten outs that didn't come via the K, eight of them were groundouts, another good sign. I know I shouldn't read too much into spring stats, but IPK and Hughes in the rotation is going to be very exciting. Following Mr. Kennedy was LaTroy Hawkins, who allowed one hit and got two groundball outs to close out the game.

Final Score: 4-0 Yankees
