Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

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.


  • George Springer: 0 for 1, walk and strikeout. .214.
  • Chavez Young: 0 for 2,k. .154.
  • Marcus Semien: 0 for 3. .190.
  • Bo Bichette: 0 for 2, walk. Caught stealing. .125. He made a play deep in the hole at short that the Yankees’ radio guy raved over.
  • Santiago Espinal: 0 for 1. .250.
  • Vladimir Guerrero: 0 for 1, walk, k. .385. He also made a stretch and a catch at first that had the Yankees’ broadcast applauding.
