Yankees vs. Red Sox - Mar 13

Chien-Ming Wang is on the mound in Ft. Myers tonight as the Yankees take on the Red Sox. The game is scoreless in the bottom of the first after Tim Wakefield got Xavier Nady to hit into an inning ending double play. Brett Gardner and Juan Miranda had drawn walks, and Gardner stole his third base of the season.

Damaso Marte and Robinson Cano are back from the WBC, but Cano was sent to have his right shoulder checked out. Cano has had discomfort in the back of the shoulder since the beginning of spring training.

The Yankees have taken a 1-0 lead in the 2nd on Juan Miranda's RBI single. John Rodriguez singled and scored the run.

The lead was short lived; Mike Lowell led off the bottom of the second inning with a long solo home run.

A Juan Miranda throwing error opened the flood gates for the Red Sox in the second inning. Seven runs in all crossed home plate, two of them on a David Ortiz home run.

The Yankees answered immediately with three runs in the top of third. Xavier Nady delivered a 2-run double and Jose Molina brought him home with an RBI single.

Brett Tomko replaced Wang with two outs in the second and tossed a scoreless third.
