Yankees beat Red Sox 3-2

Posted: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - David Phelps went six innings, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts as the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2.

Phelps, who is trying to earn a spot in the starting rotation, faced a lineup close to what the Red Sox will field on Opening Day.

"It was fun, man," Phelps said. "They put a lot of their regulars out there. I like that because I can see how my stuff's playing against them. Those guys that have seen me before, I can see how my stuff is. It's also a little easier because we have a scouting report on these guys. But that's as close to a real game as I've had this spring. It was a good atmosphere with the crowd. It was a good night."

Clay Buchholz went five innings, giving up three runs on five hits, with three strikeouts for the Red Sox.

Francisco Cervelli led off the second inning with a home run, his fourth of the spring, to give the Yankees a lead.

Red Sox center fielder Grady Sizemore, attempting to make his way back into baseball after being sidelined by injuries for more than two years, played a full nine innings. It was the first time this spring he had played a full game, and his second time playing in back-to-back games. He went 1 for 4 with a run scored. He is batting .360 (9 for 25).
