Spring Training is finally over.

Freddy Garcia tossed 4 2/3 innings in his final tune-up before breaking camp, and the Yankee offense delivered seven runs late in the game to end Spring Training with a win against the Mets on Wednesday afternoon.

On the day, Garcia allowed three runs, all of which came on an Ike Davis homer in the third inning, struck out four, walked two, and allowed four hits. He'll make his season debut against the Orioles next week.

Clay Rapada replaced Garcia, walking and striking out the two batters he faced. Following Rapada, Andy Pettitte made his Spring Training debut, allowing one hit during a scoreless inning of work. David Robertson, who struck out three, Cory Wade, and Rigoberto Arrebato closed out the game with three scoreless innings.

For the offense, only David Wright's error in the third inning had allowed a Yankee to score until the seventh inning, where Francisco Cervelli's homer tied the game at 3-3. The Yankees would tack on five more runs in the eighth inning as they batted around thanks to some shoddy Mets fielding and RBI hits from Hector Rabago and Ramon Flores.

Box Score.

Up next, CC Sabathia will face off against James Shields on Opening Day. Baseball is back.
