Phil Hughes had an impressive outing giving up just one run over four and a third innings. He gave up three hits, walked one and struck out none.
Mark Teixeira delivered the Yankees' first run of the game in the sixth inning on a solo shot off of Joe Nathan. It was Tex's first homer of the spring.
After the Yankees went ahead 3-2 in the eighth inning, Austin Jackson supplied some insurance with a solo dinger of his own. Kei Igawa barely closed the game out in the ninth as he gave up two hits and walked a batter. But Igawa and the Yankees held on for the win.
Who would have thunk that Teixeira's first home run as a Yankee would be off Joe Nathan? Let's see him do that in the regular season. It's also nice to see Phil Hughes turn in another solid performance. He's currently sporting a 2.19 ERA alongside a Yankee leading 12.1 innings pitched.
