New York Yankees 3 — Toronto Blue Jays 0   The Yankees hold the Toronto Blue Jays off the scoreboard in today’s 5-0 win.   Kevin Youkilis got his first hit in a Yankees uniform today (1 for 13) with a ringing double. The big hit of the game came from the returning Yankee, fighting for a spot on the roster, Juan Rivera. The 34-year old veteran competes for a potential outfield spot or splitting time at designated hitter. After two walks and an error, Rivera hit a bases-clearing double to bring in the  only three runs of the game.   David Phelps continues to make a good impression this Spring and would likely project for a spot on the starting rotation. Phelps pitched five scoreless innings, walked one, struck out three, and allowed three hits. In 14 innings, Phelps has allowed just one  run to a 0.64 ERA.   Win – David Phelps Loss – Brett Cecil Save – Vidal Nuno   Notables Yankees *Juan Rivera – 3 for 4, 2B, 3 RBI (3) *Kevin Youkilis – 1 for 2, R, BB, 2B Blue Jays *Melky Cabrera – 1 for 2, 2B *Adam Lind – 1 for 2
