Different result this time — Yankees 7, Red Sox 1
Yes, it’s still just spring training, so this game doesn’t count in the regular season standings. But we’re getting closer to the regular season now…more of the “big boys” (as opposed to the minor leaguers) played in this game…and Jeter was back. So this was a satisfying win. Burnett looked very good on the mound, and Austin Jackson’s grand slam in the eighth put the game out of reach for the Red Sox.
The Yankees spring training record is now 15-10-1.
