Reliever Chase Whitley gave up a pair of runs in his inning of work, including a run-scoring triple. Shawn Kelley continues to work to earn a spot on the Yankees bullpen with a scoreless inning of work.

Melky Mesa got two hits and scored once as he continues to be a front-runner for the vacant outfield spot with Curtis Granderson’s injury. Thomas Neal brought in the only run on a double in the 4th inning.
