Yankees 5 Blue Jays 1
The star of the game was Alek Manoah. Three innings, no hits or walks and 7 strikeouts. He looked great. Very smooth. We got a great view of his pitches with the center field camera, there was a lot of movement on his breaking pitches and 96 on the fastball. Reading way too much into three innings, I can’t wait until we see him in the majors.
Simeon Woods Richardson threw three good innings too, Allowing 2 hits and getting 3 strikeouts. His curve was very impressive, with a variety of speeds, ranging from 70 to low 80s.
Jackson Rees allowed a walk in his inning with 2 strikeouts. Adam Kloffenstein allowed a hit and got a strikeout.
CJ Eyk had a terrible time of it in the ninth, giving up 3 walks, with 2 hits, adding up to 5 earned, without getting an out. He got the loss.
Anthony Castro came in and gave up a hit and walk, while striking out the side.
On offense, we only had 2 hits:
- Lourdes Gurriel hit a double, which with the help of a Yankees’ error, scored our run.
- Jordan Groshans singled, first hit of the spring. He’s 1 for 8.
