By Gary W. Marchese Jr.

Sarasota, FL (Mar 8) – The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles played to a 0-0 tie Monday night. The Yankees were playing their second game of the day a split squad affair. Sergio Mitre made his first start after two relief appearances and pitched three scoreless innings. He gave up three hits and he struck out three batters.

Adam Warren pitched two innings giving up a hit and a walk with two strikeouts. Andrew Sisco pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout; D.J. Mitchell pitched two innings giving up two hits, while striking out three batters. Ryan Pope pitched a perfect inning, the two teams only played nine innings even though it was a tie.

It was a long day for the Yankees even though the players did not play two games. Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Damon Sublett, and Melky Mesa each had a hit for the Yankees. Mark Teixeira drew a walk and Justin Maxwell drew two walks. This game was about the pitching, as there was only one extra base hit by each team.

The Yankees record this spring is 3-5 and they have a couple of ties. They will travel to Disney Tuesday afternoon to take on the Atlanta Braves. Greg Golson hurt his ribcage during the night game. It does not sound too bad but the Yankees should know more tomorrow. Joe Girardi said he did not know what he did just that he came in and said it was bothering him.

Andrew Brackman is scheduled to make his spring debut tomorrow. Rafael Soriano will make his spring debut either Wednesday or Thursday. Girardi said we could begin to see all the Yankees regulars in the same lineup as soon as Sunday adding, they are getting closer to playing with the lineup.

The Daily News was reporting Monday morning that there is a strong push for Brett Gardner to be the leadoff hitter.
