Felix Doubront struggles against Yankees

The New York Yankees played rude hosts to Felix Doubront and the rest of the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday. The Yankees tagged Doubront for ten hits, three walks and seven runs in just 3 2/3 innings of work. The Yankees went on to win the game 8-1.

Red Sox fans shouldn't worry too much about Doubront's less than stellar performance. During the broadcast on ESPN Red Sox manager John Farrell brushed it off as just a dead arm period that most pitchers go through at one time or other during the spring.

Boston's lineup was quite thin as most of the club's regulars didn't make the trip. Xander Bogaerts, Jonny Gomes and Jackie Bradley Jr. were the only starters to go to Tampa.

On the Yankees side of the ledger Michael Pineda impressed by throwing 4 1/3 innings of shutout ball.

The game was delayed for several minutes in the bottom of the third when a swarm of bees descended on left fielder Mike Carp.
