CC Sabathia gave up just one run over four innings - a big improvement from his last start. Mariano Rivera followed CC with his first inning of the spring. He struck out two in the perfect inning. It's about time for Big Mo, but on the other hand, he normally doesn't need much time to get ready for the regular season. He has plenty of games left, and I'm sure the Yanks will take it slow.
Hideki Matsui led the hitting barrage for the Yanks with a two-run double in the first and a two-run homer in the third inning. This of course was just a response to my earlier post about him needing to impress me (hehe). Full box score here.
You may notice in the box that our old friend Jose Tabata (part of trade for Xavier Nady) did some damage against us (two hits, a steal and a run). Tabata's still young, but just think about the outfield overflow the Yankees would have if they still had him.
