Spring Training Opening Day

Spring Traning began two days ago, but the Yankees played their first game today against the Minnesota Twins at Legends Field.
Picking up where they left off last year, Johnny Damon and Jason Giambi both went deep and provided the primary offense that the Yankees would need in a 6-1 victory.
Chein-Ming Wang took the start and the win shutting down the Twins in two perfect innings and inducing five of the six hitters he faced into ground outs.
Pitching prospect Phillip Hughes nervously pitched his way through one and a third allowing two walks and a wild pitch and giving up the only run of the game.
His performance, although unimpressive, is not a basis of his career. There have been many pitchers with poor debuts and have become successful in their careers most notably Mariano Rivera. As a starter in 1995 and 1996, Rivera had a weak win-loss record and was moved to the set-up position for John Wetteland before finally landing his closer spot.

Due to the frequent day games and the lack of full game accounts, we are unable to present scorecards though out spring training.
