In Jupiter, Florida, the Astros topped the Cardinals, 4-3. Michael Bourn had a single and 2 walks, and was caught stealing for only the second time this spring.
Out of minor league camp, these points of interest:
The Yankees take 3 of the 4 minor league contests from the Phillies. The AAA game went to NY, 2-1, with Mike Spidale driving in Lou Marson with the lone run for our side.
The AA game produced the only victory for the Phillies, a 5-0 in which 5 HomeSiders combined for the shutout. In order, Vance Worley, Joe Bisenius, Andrew Cruise, Will Savage and Francisco Butto allowed just 4 baserunners. Tim Kennelly scored 2 runs for the Phils.
In Tampa, the high A game went to the Yankees, 15-6. Freddy Galvis had 2 hits and 2 RBI, Luis Arzeno hit a pinch home run, Mike Durant was 1 for 4 (but it was a double off Andy Pettitte), and Matt Rizzotti and D'arby Myers each doubled and scored. Each side made 4 errors in that one. The low A game also went to NY, 14-4, so the Yankees scored a total of 29 runs on 39 hits in the two games. Needless to say, none of our pitchers had a good day, so I will give them a group pass and not mention any of them. With about 10 days to go in camp, some of them are probably in trouble.
