Wang, Yanks fall against Phillies

After the Rays halted the Yankees' bid for a ten-game winning streak yesterday, the Phillies handed Chien-Ming Wang his second loss of the spring.

Wang dealt five innings of three-run ball, but Brian Bruney and Dan Giese followed by giving up two and three runs, respectively.

The Yankees' only extra-base hit of the game came off Mark Teixeira's bat in the fifth inning.  The following batter, Xavier Nady, singled in Tex for the Yanks' second run of the game.  The final score ended up being 8-3.  Full box score here.

This poor outcome for the Yankees might have been because the Phillies needed to retaliate from last Monday's 12-0 loss to the Yanks.

The Yanks play the Red Sox tomorrow night at 7 p.m. at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
