Jorge Vazquez made his mark on the Yankees in his first at bat of spring training by crushing a two-run homer to dead center field. He singled in his second AB and one blogger called him the next Babe Ruth.
Vazquez hits righty and is about 714 homers shy of Babe’s status, but he certainly made the first ST game entertaining. Full box score here.
Bartolo Colon made his first effort to win a spot in the Yankees’ rotation, and it wasn’t particularly bad: 2 IP, 2 H, ER, BB.
Oh, and the Yankees lost to the Phillies 5-4. But who cares? It’s spring training, people.
