Yankees lose 13-11

The offense - particularly Robinson Cano and Brett Gardner - shined Sunday afternoon in Sarasota against the Cincinnati Reds. But the pitchers didn't, as they gave up 13 runs, including three runs charged to starter Alfredo Aceves in one inning of work, to lose 13-11.

Gardner went 2-for-3 at the plate with a solo home run in the third inning. Derek Jeter and Cano went 3-for-3; Cano hit a home run, a double and drove in four. Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez each added two hits - Rodriguez hit two doubles and drove in two runs.

Mark Melancon was the only pitcher who didn't give up an earned run on the day. Damaso Marte gave up two earned runs in one inning.

The Yankees will play the Astros tomorrow afternoon at 1:05 p.m. in Kissimmee. Chien-Ming Wang will start.

All hail Mark Melancon.
