Another player hit with a ball, this time Yankees left-hander Damaso Marte, but he appears to have dodged serious injury. The ball was hit by Ryan Howard straight up the middle. It was interesting how MLB.com worded it “Ryan Howard singles on a line drive to first baseman Mark Teixeira, deflected by pitcher Damaso Marte.” Since he is not seriously hurt, just appears to be bruised, I will give it a lol.
Tuesday, March 16 was an evening game, but it was not televised here, not only that but I had to do something which meant I couldn’t even follow the tweets. Yankees won that game against Houston 4-1. Today’s game against the Phillies, Yankees lost, 6-2. Andy Pettitte started, then Damaso Marte, who faced four batters before he got hit, then Joba Chamberlain pitched 4 solid innings, giving up one run.
Next game is Thursday, March 18 at 7:05 p.m. against the Tampa Bay Rays I don’t know if it is being televised, but I won’t be home anyway. Javier Vazquez will be making his third start in Spring Training and Chan Ho Park is scheduled to make his first appearance.
