Spring Recap #5

Not a great day for the Yankees:
Hitting:
Johnny Damon was 2-3 with two doubles. Bobby Abreu was 1-3 with a homer. Austin Jackson was 1-3 as well. Greg Porter hit a grand slam and Chris Woodward was 2-3. Not too many regulars in the lineup today.

Pitching:
Wang got rocked, giving up six earned while only retiring two batters. He gave up six hits and walked two, an said he was overthrowing and overstriding, then threw in the bullpen to try to correct the problem. Scott Patterson retired all four batters he faced, striking out one. He has not allowed a baserunner in his 2.2 spring innings. The Farns pitched a scoreless inning, but did walk a batter. Darell Rasner gave up a grand slam in two innings of work, and Sean Henn gave up two runs (one earned) in one inning. Dan Giese and Billy Traber each pitched a scoreless inning, with Traber striking out one.
