Yanks at Astros: Aceves gets a shot

Freddy gets another shot to build his case to be the fifth starter after Mitre and Gaudin pitched well and poorly, respectively, last night.

Brett Myers goes for the 'Stros.

1:05 first pitch - no TV.

Well, Aceves had his shot to stay in the running for the fifth starter's spot, but he endured his worst game of the spring (4.1 ip, 5 er, 5 h, 1 bb, 2 k), raising his ERA to 3.77.

Mark Melancon allowed a run over 2/3 of an inning.

On the offensive side -

Gardner: 2-3, 3B (picked off 1B)

NJ: 0-1, 2 BB

Tex: 1-2, BB, K

Arod: 2-3, 2 2B, GIDP

Cano: 1-3, HR, 2 K
