CC struggles, Hughes dominant as Yanks sweep Nationals 4-3 in 10 innings
With the news that Andy Pettitte re-signed with the Yankees, it was almost enough to take away from the ball game, but it didn’t. CC Sabathia struggled in 3 innings while Phil Hughes flourished as the Yankees swept the Nationals 4-3 in 10 innings. Sabathia gave up 3 runs in 3 innings, Rafael Soriano came in the 4th inning and pitched a scoreless inning and Phil Hughes went 4 innings giving up no runs on 3 hits and 3 strikeouts. Not a bad day for Hughes on the mound, huh?
Alex Rodriguez‘s offense proved key as he hit a game tying HR in the 5th inning, his second HR of the Spring.
During the YES Network broadcast, Ken Singleton & John Flaherty spoke with Brian Cashman, Joe Girardi & Andy Pettitte himself spoke about the Andy Pettitte signing. Pettitte will report to camp Tuesday but will take all the time he needs to get ready.
WHAT’S NEXT: The Yankees will play the Houston Astros tomorrow at GMS Field. The game will be on YES Network.
