Swisher leads Yanks in rout of Phillies

Swisher leads Yanks in rout of Phillies

at Tampa, Fla.
Monday, March 16

Phillies at the plate: Geoff Jenkins and Matt Stairs doubled for Philadelphia, which was limited to five hits through six scoreless innings by New York pitching.

Yankees at the plate: New York pushed its first run across in the third inning, as Cody Ransom walked and later scored on a Jason Donald throwing error. Jose Molina drove in a run later in the frame. Nick Swisher drilled a two-run single in the fourth, bringing home Eduardo Nunez, Brett Gardner and -- after Swisher was hung up between first and second bases -- Ransom with the Yankees' fifth run. Gardner added an RBI triple in a six-run sixth.

Phillies on the mound: Continuing his bid to crack Philadelphia's rotation, Kyle Kendrick had a rough outing, allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits in four innings. Kendrick walked three and struck out two, his spring ERA lowering to 12.10.

Yankees on the mound: Joba Chamberlain worked three scoreless innings, scattering two hits. Chamberlain walked one and struck out three, hitting a batter and throwing 48 pitches (27 strikes). Brian Bruney had a shaky fourth, walking two and allowing a double but no runs. Kei Igawa hurled two more scoreless innings, running his spring streak to 11 frames.

Grapefruit League records: Phillies 6-10; Yankees 9-8-1

Up next: On Tuesday, the Phillies will return home to Clearwater, Fla., to meet the Reds for a 1:05 p.m. ET start. Brett Myers gets the start for Philadelphia.

The Yankees will host the Pirates on Tuesday at Steinbrenner Field, facing off in a 7:15 p.m. start. Left-hander CC Sabathia will make his third Grapefruit League start for New York, with right-hander Virgil Vasquez on the mound for Pittsburgh. The game will be televised on MLB.TV.
