Offense gets to R.A. Dickey in 10-6 loss to Blue Jays

Carlos Beltran 6

The Yankees were able to get to R.A. Dickey early, but the bullpen couldn’t hold the lead as the Yankees fell to the Blue Jays 10-6 at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.

The offense scored six runs in the first two innings; in the first inning a Derek Jeter walk and singles from Carlos Beltran, Alfonso Soriano and Kelly Johnson gave the Yankees a 2-0 lead. In a four-run second, Dean Anna and Beltran each had a pair of RBI doubles, giving the Yankees a 6-0 lead.

Chris Leroux, who was the starter, was charged with two runs on five hits in three innings. Fred Lewis, who is being considered for a bullpen spot, gave up two runs and Preston Claiborne gave up six runs without recording an out during the Blue Jays eight-run fifth inning. Following the game, Joe Girardi wasn’t sure if Claiborne was going to make the team to begin the season since he has a 14.29 ERA this Spring.

What’s Next?

CC Sabathia will get his fifth and final start of the Spring as he travels to Bradenton, Fla to take on the Pittsburgh Pirates. The first pitch will be at 1:05 p.m. and the game will air on MLB.TV.
