Deivi Garcia gave up a two-run homer in the second inning, but the Yankees offense came through late to secure a 5-3 win over the Braves on Friday >> Box score
7 things to know from Friday's game...
1) Deivi Garcia got the start, exiting after allowing just one hit, one walk and striking out three. However, his lone hit allowed was a two-run home run to Johan Camargo in the second inning.
2) Despite not securing a hit yet in spring training, Mike Tauchman found himself on the bases after a walk in the sixth inning. After a Gleyber Torres single brought him to third base, Tauchman scored on a throwing error by Braves catcher Travis d'Arnaud to bring the score to 2-1. Tauchman went 0-for-2, while Torres went 1-for-3.
3) The Yankees took their first lead of the game in the bottom of the seventh. With Kellin Deglan at first base, Estevan Florial crushed a homer to right to put the Yankees up, 3-2.
4) In the very next inning, the Yankees took a big lead that they would hold onto. Wynston Sawyer hit an RBI double to bring in Hoy Jun Park, and then scored two at-bats later on a Deglan single to center to put the Yanks up, 5-2.
5) DJ LeMahieu and Kyle Higashioka each went 1-for-3, with LeMahieu reaching on an infield single in the first and Higashioka singling to left in the second.
6) Gio Urshela forgot his jersey prior to coming to the park, so he had to settle for an unfamiliar No. 68. The new jersey did not work in his favor, as Urshela went 1-for-3 with a strikeout, ground out and pop out.
7) Luis Avilan made a perfect relief appearance. Avilan, who spent last season with the Mets, struck out all three batters he faced in the bottom of the sixth inning.
The Yankees travel to Fort Myers, Fla. to take on the Red Sox on Saturday at 1:05 p.m.
LHP Jordan Montgomery is scheduled to start for the Yanks, while LHP Eduardo Rodriguez gets the start for Boston.
