Yankees 0-3 in Spring Training
Saturday, March 04, 2006
Yes, folks, it’s true—the Yanks have fallen to the first three teams they faced this spring. The Phillies and the Reds both toppled the Bombers this week, but several Yanks had some hot stuff to offer:

- Damon went 2 for 3 in game 1 on Thursday, hitting a double and a single. As Giambi put it, "That's what he does best. That's what makes him the player that he is: He gets on base. He scores runs. He gives you an opportunity to score a run when he gets on."

- Also in game 1, starting pitcher Shawn Chacon had a 1-2-3 first inning and another scoreless outing in the second. "For the most part, I was throwing strikes and getting comfortable," he said. "Just getting my feet under me out there." Chacon threw thirty pitches, 17 for strikes.

- In game 2 against the Phillies, Cano had a two-out double in the third, and Melky Cabrera went 4-5 with one RBI. Twenty-six year old minor league outfielder Kevin Thompson went 3 for 3 with two runs scored.

- Jaret Wright made his debut in game 2, and pitched two innings, allowing just one run.

- The Unit had his first start in game 3 against the Reds today. Johnson allowed three runs on three hits, but pitched well: he walked one and struck out two, throwing 48 pitches, 30 for strikes. "Overall, I was pretty pleased that I was able to go out there," Johnson said. "It's a lot different than throwing BP, because you can get an assessment of where you're at, where your pitches are."

- After the Unit went out, Proctor stepped up to the mound and pitched two scoreless innings with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts.

- Posada and Duncan both hit doubles today, and Cano went 2 for 4.

What’s next for the Yanks? Several players have already left Spring Training to report for duty for the WBC; Damon, Jeter, A-Rod and Al Leiter took off for Arizona after Thursday’s game, and Bernie Williams headed for Port St. Lucie, where the Puerto Rican team is assembling. Moose will make his Spring Training debut tomorrow, when the Yanks will face Toronto.
