At Tampa, New York Yankees played at home against Baltimore Orioles and won 9-4. Leading 6-4 after seven innings, the Yankees took more distance by adding three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Didi Gregorius played a complete game for New York as short stop and was 1-for-4, which was a double. He batted in two runs.

Jonathan Schoop started as second baseman for Baltimore and was 1-for-2. His lone basehit was his sixth Spring Training-homerun. He scored twice and batted in one run, while also walking once.

Schoop and Gregorius were both productive in the first at bat. With two outs in the top of the first inning, Schoop homered off of starter Luis Cessa to put Baltimore ahead. That was shortlived, as it was Gregorius who put New York ahead moments later in the bottom of the first inning off of starter Miguel Castro. With one out, Aaron Judge walked and with two outs, Giancarlo Stanton singled. The bases got loaded when Gary Sanchez walked, then Gregorius delivered a 2-run double to make it a 2-1 score in favor of New York.

New York added three more runs in the second inning. The inning ended when Gregorius flied out.

In the top of the fourth inning, Baltimore got two runs back. Trey Mancini led off with a double, then Schoop walked. With one out, Mancini scored on a sacrifice fly by Danny Valencia, then Schoop scored on a following single by Austin Hays.

Gregorius popped out in the fifth inning and Schoop flied out, leading off the sixth inning.

In the bottom of the seventh, Schoop was replaced by new catcher Andrew Susac, while Adrian Marin entered as new second baseman.

In the seventh, Gregorius led off for New York, but struckout in what was his last at bat in this game. In the eighth inning, New York added three more runs when Aaron Judge hit his second homerun in the game.

At Port Charlotte, Boston Red Sox played at Tampa Bay Rays and won 8-3. Leading 1-0, Boston decided the game with a 5-run rally in the top of the fourth inning.

Xander Bogaerts started as short stop for Boston and was 0-for-3 with a walk.

After Boston had opened the score in the top of the first inning on a single by J.D. Martinez, Bogaerts walked with two outs. But he and Martinez were left behind.

Bogaerts led off the fourth inning with a flyout. Hereafter, Boston rallied for five runs to increase its lead to 6-0.

In the fifth and seventh inning, Bogaerts again was the lead-off hitter. This time, he struckout and popped out to short.

Bogaerts was replaced in the bottom of the seventh by new short stop Ivan De Jesus, Jr..

At Kissimmee, Atlanta Braves hosted Detroit Tigers and won 3-2. Atlanta broke a 2-2 tie by scoring in the bottom of the eighth inning, thanks to a single by Preston Tucker.

Ozzie Albies was the starting second baseman for Atlanta and was 1-for-3.

Trailing 1-0, Atlanta got the bases loaded in the bottom of the first inning. With one out, Albies singled, then Freddie Freeman and Kurt Suzuki both walked. But hereafter, Detroit-starter Francisco Liriano struckout the next two hitters.

In the second inning, with runners on first and second base and one out, Albies grounded into a double play. He then closed the fourth at bat with a grounder.

In the top of the seventh inning, Albies was replaced by new second baseman Danny Santana.

At West Palm Beach, Washington Nationals played at home against Houston Astros and lost 8-3. Houston already lead 8-0 after five innings.

Trailing 8-0 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Miguel Montero led off for Washington and was hit by a pitch. He was replaced by Spencer Kieboom as pinch-runner. With one out, Kieboom scored when Matt Reynolds homered.

Kieboom remained in the game and took over for Montero behind the plate. He got his lone at bat in the bottom of the ninth. He then led off and struckout.
