ST Game 2 live updates

3:34 p.m.: He shuts the door in the ninth. Yankees win 5-1 to improve to 2-0 in Spring Training. Yay.

3:30 p.m.:
Jonathan Albaladejo in to close.

3:20 p.m.:
1-2-3 for Melancon. Bottom of the eighth now.

3:16 p.m.:
Mark Melancon is in. He's the reason why I'm still watching this game.

3:09 p.m.:
Duncan three-run home run. 5-1 Yankees.

2:58 p.m.:
Gardner runs down a ball in center. He had a chance for a double play at second base, but couldn't make a good throw. Somewhere Melky silently cheered.

Cox gets out of the inning without allowing any more runs.

2:57 p.m.:
Cox isn't fooling anyone. Three straight singles for the Rays.

2:53 p.m.:
Jon Weber hits a single off the glove of new shortstop Eduardo Nunez to drive in a run. 2-1 Yankees.

2:47 p.m.: J.B. Cox
is now pitching.

2:44 p.m.:
Yankees go down in order.

2:39 p.m.:
Quick inning. Ensberg hit a single but was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double.

2:36 p.m.:
Damaso Marte in the game. Cody Ransom at first, Angel Berroa at second, Doug Bernier at third, Colin Curtis in left, Brett Gardner in center, Shelley Duncan in right, Francisco Cervelli behind the plate. Jeter is still in the game.

2:33 p.m.:
Cabrera chops out to short to end the inning. This game is flying by.

2:30 p.m.:
Posada hit a ground-rule double to center. Kapler got turned around a few times and the ball bounced on the track and over the wall. Nady scores. 2-0 Yankees.

2:29 p.m.:
Xavier Nady hits a ground-rule double with one out in the fifth.

2:26 p.m.:
Quick inning for Bruney.

2:20 p.m.:
Brian Bruney is in the game.

2:16 p.m.:
A-Rod grounds into a double play to end the inning.

2:15 p.m.:
Teixeira hits a one-out single to right. More boos for A-Rod.

2:10 p.m.:
Coke allows a single but nothing else. 1-0 Yankees heading to the bottom of the fourth.

1:59 p.m.:
The next three Yankees go down in order. Heading to the top of the fourth.

1:55 p.m.:
Jorge Posada hits the first pitch he sees from Chad Orvella over the right field wall. 1-0 Yankees.

1:53 p.m.:
Cano makes a pretty play, fielding the ball in the outfield grass and firing to Teixeira. 1-2-3 for Coke in the third.

1:49 p.m.:
Phil Coke is in the game. The other Phil, Hughes, is done for the day.

1:46 p.m.:
The Yankees go down 1-2-3 again. Robinson Cano struck out.

1:43 p.m.:
Strikes out swinging. More boos and applause (most likely for the fact that he struck out).

1:42 p.m.:
Audible boos, but mostly applause, for Rodriguez.

1:40 p.m.:
Hughes walks a batter, but gets out of the inning unscathed. Rodriguez to lead off.

1:34 p.m.:
Alex Rodriguez fields a broken-bat grounder, and Teixeira makes a nice stretch to nab Gabe Kapler at first. It's exciting having a defender of Teixeira's ability at first base.

1:31 p.m.:
The Yankees go quietly in the first. Damon popped out to a leaping Ensberg, and Jeter grounded out weakly. Teixeira got a nice hand, but struck out swinging on a pitch out of the strike zone.

1:27 p.m.:
Hughes survives the first inning, getting Morgan Ensberg to fly out to right and Ben Zobrist to pop out to short. Johnny Damon, Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira due up.

1:21 p.m.:
Hughes has hit two batters this inning. Yikes.

1:20 p.m.: Phil Hughes
is consistently throwing 92 mph in the first inning, and just struck out Carl Crawford swinging on one of those fastballs

I will post updates during today's game in this post. The newest updates will be at the top.
