First Win

Well, the Yankees won their first game today, so 0-162 is now off the table. After Tanaka was unhittable (ONE earned run all spring) he was bombed in the opener. After CC Sabathia was bombed all spring, he pitched 5 scoreless innings (only 3 hits, two of them infield dribblers). After Bird, Judge and Sanchez lit up the skies with home runs all spring, the first Yankee HR went to Ronald Torreyes, their number 9 hitter only playing due to Gregorius’ injury. Halladay got an RBI on a double which is an out IN EVERY OTHER MAJOR LEAGUE PARK: it hit the dome and bounced crazily (the dome, oddly, is in play but doesn’t count as a wall or the grass; catch it and it’s an out. Headly, who didn’t hit a HR until May 15 or drive in a run in April last season, also homered. The bullpen turned in another 4 IP of scoreless baseball, now 9.1 in two games. Go Yankees!

Other fun stuff happened, too, but I really don’t have time; I just wanted to keep up posting every day. I hope to have more time tomorrow.
