Recap: Yankees 6, Tigers 10 – March 23, 2013

Don’t worry, it’s only spring training.
Andy Pettitte pitched 6 1/3 innings, giving up 4 runs, striking out 5, and walking 1. There is nothing more to see here than an off-day. He wasn’t actually the problem, it was the 5 ER that Cody Eppley allowed in the seventh without getting one out that sealed the game for the Tigers.
On a higher note, the bats were alive today, as the team managed to produce 14 hits for 6 runs. Eduardo Nunez managed an RBI-single in the third, scoring Chris Stewart, signs that the shortstop isn’t totally useless. Ben Francisco homered in the top of the fourth, doubling the Yankees lead to two. In the top of the fifth, Kevin Youkilis drove in Brett Gardner and Eduardo Nunez on a double. I hope this is indicative of the kind of production he will be having during the regular season. With the Yankees down 9-4 in the top of the eighth, Ben Francisco went yard yet again, this time for 2 runs.
Not a terrible day for our boys, minus Cody Eppley.
