  • Postgame notes of a 6-6 tie -

The real news from this game was Nick Johnson fouling a ball off his knee. It's being called a 'bone bruise.' He's listed as day-to-day and expects to play opening night, but Joe G. is less certain.

Pettitte was just okay, throwing 4.2 innings. The bad was seven hits; the good was no runs.

Five of Baltimore's six runs were unearned due to two big Yankee errors.

Austin Romine made a picture-perfect throw to second to nab Joey Gathright trying to steal.

The offensive hero was Swish, who blasted a three-run homer in the first. Winn played for NJ and went 2-5. Tex went 2-3.

DJ went 0-3 and is hitting .231 in the spring. I know I shouldn't be, but I'm a teensy bit worried about him. He just hasn't looked very good.

One more exhibition game. The major league Yankees take on a squad of 'Future Star' Yankees tomorrow in Tampa at 1:05. TV is YES.
