Alex Rodriguez drove in three runs with a double and a sacrifice fly, and the New York Yankees completed a two-game exhibition sweep in the Miami Marlins' new ballpark by winning 5-2 Monday night. The game was the last of spring training for the Marlins, who open the season in the ballpark Wednesday night against the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals. With the retractable roof open for the first time, the Yankees again made themselves right at home. They've lost only two of their past 14 games. Hiroki Kuroda allowed one run in three innings and threw 52 pitches. He finished spring training with a 2.92 ERA in six games. Marlins newcomer Carlos Zambrano, who has battled wildness this spring, walked seven and gave up five runs in four-plus innings.
