Mar 13 – Bad Luck on the 13th: Yanks Fall to Red Sox 8-4

grapefruit-league-2009(Tampa, FL) – Chien-Mien Wang got roughed up in the 2nd inning against the Red Sox for his first pre-season loss.  He was hit for 2 long balls by Mike Lowell and David Ortiz and lasted  just 1 2/3 innings, although of his 7 runs scored only 1 was earned.

The Yanks matched Boston with 9 hits but really had trouble bringing it together vs. Tim Wakefield.   Angel Berroa was the only Yankee with 2 hits on the night.  Brett Tomko picked up 5 k’s for the Bombers in his 3 1/3 inning of relief of Wang and was a bright spot.

In other news Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and reliever Damaso Marte are scheduled to be examined by doctors Saturday and won’t immediately play after rejoining New York following the World Baseball Classic.

Cano has tightness in the back of his right shoulder. He has felt it all spring training but didn’t think it was serious.  He did have his ailing shoulder examined by the Dominican team doctor.

Marte has tightness in the left side of his chest, which he thinks stems from weightlifting. He hopes to only miss three or four days.

“Hopefully they both bounce back fairly quickly,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “It’s not how you want them coming back. I don’t think it’s long term. I think they should be out just a couple days.
