Spring Recap #3

The Yankees beat the Blue Jays in Dunedin today 2-0 in five innings. It was shortened because of rain, and the Yankees pitchers combined to throw a perfect game. Here's a summary:
Hitting:
Since it was a shortened game, I'll highlight who has had the best offensive spring so far-
Shelley Duncan: 2.000 OPS (!), HR in 9 PA
Jason Giambi: 2.000 OPS (!) , HR in 4 PA
Melky: 1.425 OPS in 7 PA
Jason Lane: 1.222 OPS in 9 PA
Morgan Ensberg: 1.000 OPS in 8 PA
Wilson Betemit: .905 OPS in 9 PA
I left off guys like A-Rod and Abreu because they are guaranteed spots on the roster. Obviously, you shouldn't read too much into these stats because a) they are in ST and b) the tiny sample size.

Pitching:
I already said it was a combined perfect game, so I'll just give you the IP, K's, etc.
Hughes: 1 IP
Patterson: 1 IP, K
Igawa: 2 IP, 2 K
Traber: 1 IP, 3 K
Good all around, and very surprising from Igawa.
