Spring Training Game No. 11: Yankees at Orioles

Sergio Mitre makes his first start of the spring tonight in Sarasota. The regular infielders and Andruw Jones will start.

Gametime is 7 p.m. without television coverage (unless you have MASN).

_____________________

I'll also recap the afternoon game, a 7-1 win for the Yankees -

A.J. Burnett pitched three perfect innings... but frankly, did not look as good as the results. He consistently fell behind hitters and generally failed to locate his pitches. So take this (1 k, 0 bb) outing with a hefty grain of salt.

Conversely, Joba Chamberlain and Pedro Feliciano looked great, each hurling a perfect frame.

The offense scored five runs off Roy Oswalt due to two home runs: a three-run bomb by Eduardo Nunez and a two-run shot by Curtis Granderson.

Mark Prior pitched an inning, but doesn't look nearly good enough to make the team. He spots his fastball well, but it's only 89-91 MPH, and he literally can't control any other pitch. I can't recall him throwing one non-fastball for a strike.

On the other hand, Luis Ayala continues to impress. Am I crazy for thinking he could make the team? He's been locating all his pitches and throws a low to mid-90s fastball.
