Yankees drop both games of doubleheader

Neither starting pitcher was great. Phil Hughes allowed two runs in four innings on seven hits while Ivan Nova conceded two runs in three innings on five hits.

The Yankees lost the home game to the Braves, 6-2, and the road game, 10-3, to the Blue Jays.

Rafael Soriano looked fine in an inning of work, getting two strikeouts and a groundout. Joba Chamberlain followed him and threw a scoreless inning despite allowing two hits.

In Dunedin, only two of the six pitchers used did not allowed an earned run, Andy Sisco and D.J. Mitchell. Of all the people you would've thought would step their game up after the injury to Frankie Cervelli, it would be Jesus Montero, but he hasn't. After another 0-3, he's batting .136 this spring (and I can't recall him getting a hit since Cervelli's injury). He did, however, pick a runner off from third-base.

Curtis Granderson homered and stole a base.

The Yanks and A.J. Burnett will take on the Washington Nationals tomorrow at 1 p.m.
