Today's Intrasquad Game: The Geese vs. The Gators

Today the Yankees had their first game of the spring, an intrasquad affair between the Geese, and the Gators.

Today's Starting Pitchers

The pitching lines for the game:

(innings, hits, runs, earned runs, walks, strikeouts)

Karstens 2 1 0 0 0 0
Patterson 1 0 0 0 0 0
Jackson 1 0 0 0 0 1
Traber 1 3 2 2 1 0
Ramirez 1 0 0 0 1 0
Ohlendorf 0.2 0 0 0 1 0

Mussina 2 4 2 1 1 1
Rasner 1 1 0 0 0 2
McCutchen 1 1 1 0 1 1
Henn 2 2 2 2 3 0
Albaladejo 1 1 0 0 0 0
Melancon 1 2 1 0 0 2


The Geese won the game beating the Gators 6-2.

The hitting star of the game was Morgan Ensberg, who was 2-3 with a double, a walk, and 3 runs scored. The Yankees committed 7 errors in the game
(Brett Gardner, Justin Christian, Chris Woodward, Cody Ransom, Nick Green, Eduardo Nunez and Marcos Vechionacci), so it was exactly what you would expect from the first game of spring training: Sloppy and pointless. At least nobody got hurt.


Tabata --- Melancon


Jeter and A-Rod
