News of the day…
- The Yankees topped the Astros 10-8 today. Phil Hughes gave up a pair of homers in three innings of work while Steve Garrison allowed one run across three frames. Brian Anderson got lit up, and David Phelps closed things out with two okay innings. Alex Rodriguez and Greg Golson went deep, plus Andruw Jones, Robbie Cano, Dan Brewer, and Eduardo Nunez chipped in doubles. Russell Martin went 2-for-4 with a steal. Here’s the box score.
- Mariano Rivera, the oldest player in camp, threw a bullpen session with Kyle Higashioka, the second youngest player in camp, behind the plate. Bartolo Colon and Manny Banuelos also threw side sessions today. There’s a chance Mo will get into Wednesday’s game, but that’s not set in stone. Rafael Soriano, however, will pitch in tomorrow’s game. (Pete Caldera, George King & Chad Jennings)
- Colin Curtis jammed his right shoulder during today’s game and had his arm in a sling. He’s going for an MRI tomorrow. (Bryan Hoch & Jennings)
