New York Yankees 4 — Washington Nationals 2
Andy Pettitte struck out six over six innings in today’s 4-2 win over the Washington Nationals.
Robinson Cano is on top of his game as he got two hits, including a double, in today’s game. The Yankees got their offense started in the 4th inning on Kevin Youkilis’ sixth home run of the Spring to left field. Eduardo Nunez’s single of two hits brought in two runs. Then, Chris Stewart followed Nunez with a single to right field that created a bit of a jam for Stewart, caught between first and second base. Stewart likely expected Nunez to be sent home and this forced Nunez to attempt to score and succeed when the catcher, Kurt Suzuki, dropped the ball. The four-run 4th inning would be enough for the Yankees in today’s game.
Travis Hafner got a hit in today’s game and Vernon Wells got two, including a double.
