Vazquez, Joba and Park

Those are the scheduled pitchers for tonight against Jeremy Guthrie and the O's.

First pitch at 7:05. TV is and MASN (if you have it).

  • Postgame notes of an 11-7 win -

Robbie Cano put the Yanks on the board early with a three-run jack in the first. Baltimore eventually pulled within one, but then the hitters came back to life and put the game out of reach.

Perhaps the best (and worst) news of the night is that Mark Teixeira's injured elbow looks to be nothing more than a contusion. Baltimore's orthopedist determined he did not need X-rays after taking a Guthrie fastball off his right elbow.

Joba threw 2/3 scoreless, Park added a scoreless inning, but D-Rob allowed a run in one frame.

Also of note, Jeter went 0-5, NJ went 0-2 (but walked thrice) and Marcus Thames hit his second long-ball of the spring, this time off a righty!

Vazquez looked great through four innings, then ran into trouble in the fifth. He just lost command for a few hitters and it cost him. A two-on, first-pitch hanging slider to Adam Jones was crushed to deep left-centerfield.

Split-squad doubleheader tomorrow. 1 p.m. at the Braves and 7 p.m. vs. the Jays.
