The Yankees needed a nice win to finish the Spring... and they got it.
Nathan Eovaldi gave up 3 runs in 5 innings. Not his best performance,
but it's the Spring... don't panic. The offense bailed out the Yanks
There were 2 home runs today that helped them along. Stephen Drew was able to crank out a 2 run shot in the 5th. There was another later on when we really needed it. I'll let MLB.com take over to explain:
"Doug Fister turned in his best performance of the spring, but the Yankees spoiled it later when Chris Young hit a two-run homer off Drew Storen in the eighth for a 4-3 victory over Washington in the exhibition finale for both teams Saturday."
The hitting looked good today. Even Didi Gregorius had a double. Glad he's back and all tuned up.
Well, this is it ladies and gentlemen. It's Easter Eve. Easter's next... then Yankees Opening Day. We made it. How great is that?
Final: Yankees 4 - Nationals 3
