The Yankees took some time Tuesday to enjoy a little team bonding sponsored by skipper Joe Girardi.  The team haded over to a video arcade this morning for a little fun and Girardi set up three competitions – Indy Racing, Skeeball and Pop-a-Shot (arcade basketball).

AJ Burnett took top honors in the racing, relief pitcher Andrew Brackman took the skeeball competition and minor league pitcher Royce Ring took the Pop-a-shot contest.  Mark Feinsand of the Daily News was the beat reporter who attended the games and took the following comment from Mark Teixeira about the day:

“The highlights were A.J. Burnett just smoking the field in the video game racing, and Royce Ring being probably the best Pop-A-Shot basketball player I’ve ever seen,” Teixeira said. “Those two were hands-down the best at those two events.”

Doing things like this is huge for team chemistry and is going to help with all the new additions on the team this year.  With virtually an entirely new bench and several new pitchers, keeping the same fun and light-hearted clubhouse feeling from last season is going to be crucial to repeating as world champs.

Last season the Yankees had a pool tournament which was won by Mariano Rivera.


So the Yankees lost for the fifth time in the last 6 games. they are now 2-5-1 during this spring training season.

With the Yankees missing 1/4 of their lineup due to the WBC, this gives the minor leaguers/lifers a chance to prove themselves.

The Yankees lost to the Braves, 3-2.

Ian Patrick Kennedy started the game for the Yankees and in three innings two earned runs on three hits and a walk. Dan Giese also pitched three innings, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out three.

Andrew Brackman threw one perfect inning, and Mark Melancon also threw one scoreless and allowed just one hit.

The bulk of the Yankees’ offense came from Johnny Damon who went 1-for-2 with a walk, a triple, and an RBI, and Juan Miranda who went 0-for-2 with a walk and an RBI.

The only other Yankee to pick up hits were Xavier Nady who went 1-for-3 with a run, Angel Berroa who went 1-for-3, and pitcher Dan Giese who went 1-for-2 with a run scored.

The Yankees host Canada at 1:15 tomorrow at Steinbrenner Field. Joba Chamberlain gets the start.
