The second thing to discuss for tonight is the second exhibition game.
CC Sabathia started the game today. Before the game started, he was very excited. He felt great and he was happy to be back on the mound. He explained that the Spring Training was a very good thing for him because he could finally move again and get back into the groove of things.
The Yanks didn't do too great today. They lost to their 2009 World Series competitors, the Phillies. Polanco singled in the first inning and in the second inning, Bocock got a single. Ozzie Chavez got a double in the seventh inning, scoring Juan Castro. Hoover got a double, and ended up on third base. His teammate, Berry was able to score. Valdez won by getting a single past Wilkins Arias.
The Yankee that pitched today was CC Sabathia. He did very well. Also, Segovia (a former Phillies pitcher), walked someone after CC was taken out. Although he did very well, he still thinks he could do better.
For the Phillies, Halladay made his Phillies debut today. He allowed no hits and two scoreless innings.
Nick Johnson was not in the lineup against the Phillies due to a stiff lower back. Although he hurt himself, he insisted and told Joe Girardi that he could play. To keep it state, however, Joe decided to scratch him for the Phillies game. We may possibly see him tomorrow against Tampa.
Also, the Yankees honored prospects in their system. Some prospects that were honored were Austin Romine and Zach McAllister. They were nominated for best pitcher of the year and best player of the year.
Sorry that this report was so short, but that's all that really happened. Remember to comment. I'll come back tomorrow night. Until then, have a good night, Yankee fans. Have a blessed tomorrow.
