Yankees manager Aaron Boone also revealed the order of New York's starting rotation for the beginning of the regular season on Sunday. Here's the latest and what it means:

After a quiet first for both sides, Jay Bruce hits a booming double off the wall in right-center field. He was eventually stranded on third, though.
Corey Kluber ran into some trouble in the third. After loading the bases, the right-hander plunked Didi Gregorius to bring in Philly's first run. Then, a sac fly from Jean Segura to left makes it 2-0.
It's also worth noting that Mike Tauchman left this game after fouling a pitch off the inside of his right ankle. He struck out and stayed in the game in the bottom of the second, but was replaced in the bottom of the third.
New York gets on the board as Clint Frazier scores on a sacrifice fly. Frazier grimaced at third base after stealing second and advancing to third on an errant throw. He stayed in the game, though.
Phillies extend their lead to 5-1 as Nick Maton delivers an RBI double to the center field wall, following by another RBI double from Luis Garcia. Then, Bryson Stott ripped an RBI single for the third run of the inning off Luis Cessa.
Thairo Estrada goes yard to left field, making the score 6-2. Pretty much all of the starters have come out of the game at this point for both teams.
FINAL: Yankees 2, Phillies 6
That'll do it. Estrada's home run was the seventh hit of the day for New York, but they only managed to score two runs against Philly this afternoon.
The Yankees are back in action on Monday at home against the Tigers, the final game of spring training.
Thank you for following along as always and we'll see you back here one last time before the regular season on Monday afternoon!
