Well, this was a tough game... The Yankee batters ( Matsui, Sheffield, Posada, Cano, Cairo, and Phillips) did absolutely nothing. The Yankees only had TWO hits during the game. They were totally outmatched by Kenny Rogers who went 3 scoreless innings.

Randy Johnson gave up 7 HITS and 5 RUNS in his 4 innings pitched...

This game was probably the most disappointing Spring Training game yet... The Yankees had most of their main batters playing, their ace ( Johnson) pitching, and the Farnsworth/Rivera combo relieving, but they still ended up losing.

Yankees Record: 5 wins, 4 losses
