Wang, Yankees fall to Braves in a pitching duel

Chien-Ming Wang started his second game of the spring and gave up his first and only run in a 3-1 loss against the Braves.

Alex Rodriguez's temporary backup at third, Justin Leone, drove in Mark Teixeira with two outs in the bottom of the fourth inning for the Yanks' lone run.

On a side note, the Yankees are 1-7-1 in their last nine contests.  Not to worry, it's only spring training.

Yanks play tomorrow at 1:05 p.m. against Detriot.  A.J. Burnett will toe the rubber for the first time as a Yankee.
