The enigmatic Pat Venditte will follow CC Sabathia in the matinee affair at 1:05 against the Braves. Unfortunately, that game will only be televised on MLB.tv.

Sergio Mitre pitches under the lights in Tampa against the Jays. That game will be televised on YES at 7:05.

(The famous video of Venditte facing a switch-hitter for the first time. The rules now state Venditte has to declare first which hand he'll pitch from.)

  • Postgame(s) notes -

Game 1: 9-6 loss

CC struggled, letting Atlanta score five times in 4.2 innings. Venditte entered and gave up a run in 1.1 innings. Zack Segovia closed out the game with a few more runs let in (2 ip, 3 er).

Swisher and Posada both hit their first homers of the spring. Jorge's was off old Joe Torre punching-bag Scott Proctor.

Game 2: 5-3 win

Sergio Mitre pitched very well yet again, lowering his spring ERA to 3.27 with six innings of two-run ball.

Marte, Mo and Logan closed out the game, allowing one unearned run in three frames.

Jeter: 2-3, 3B, BB, SB

Thames: 1-4, 2B

Arod: 2-3, BB

1 p.m. game tomorrow against Minnesota.
