Yankees/Jays Spring training Recap- 3/4/2008

YANKEES 2, BLUE JAYS 0 (five-plus innings)
at Dunedin, Fla.
Tuesday, March 4

Yankees at the plate: In the second inning, Shelley Duncan doubled to left field and scored on a single by center fielder Melky Cabrera, giving the Yankees a 1-0 lead. Duncan added an RBI single in the fourth inning to score Morgan Ensberg.

Blue Jays at the plate: Following a 61-minute rain delay, the Jays pulled the majority of their regular players from the lineup. Toronto managed no hits in the one-hour, 15-minute contest, which was called in the top of the sixth, and had no baserunners.

Yankees on the mound: Thanks to the rain delay in the second inning, right-hander Phil Hughes was able to complete only one inning against Toronto. Hughes set down all three batters he faced -- two via ground-ball outs. Left-hander Kei Igawa threw 18 pitches (13 strikes) in two shutout innings.

Blue Jays on the mound: Jesse Litsch, who is vying for the fifth spot in Toronto's rotation, made his second start of the spring. In two innings, Litsch allowed one run on three hits, with one strikeout and one walk, finishing with 44 pitches (25 strikes). Litsch was scheduled to pitch three innings, but he was forced to complete his work indoors due to the rain delay.

Grapefruit League records: Yankees 3-0-1; Blue Jays 2-4. Yankees are currently 0.5 game back from the Rays who are 4-0

Up next: The Yankees will return home to Legends Field on Wednesday to meet the Twins. Right-hander Ian Kennedy is slated to make his first start of the spring for New York, opposite Minnesota right-hander Kevin Slowey. First pitch is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. ET. This game will be televised on YES. For full box score http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/boxscore

You will not have heaps of papers in your office. The faxed flyers usually look like they're advertising a comprehensive health care policy at a great, low rate. What happens as a result is that a debt trap that is hard to overcome in the end engulfs them. Most Internet fax service providers use the best online fax technology having filters that can filter your attachment, convert them to a file that can be seen on screen without any additional software.
