Mussina pitched very well through his first three innings, but faltered in the fourth.

None of the Yankee regulars traveled to the Red's spring training ballpark, so the Yankees lineup consisted mostly of minor leaguers.

Escalona hit his first home run of Spring Training.

Guillen's two-run double in the eight tied the game at four.

Erickson lost the game in the bottom of the ninth...

Yankees' Record: 5 wins, 5 losses
