• The first three Yankee batters got hits and scored Friday -- then they didn't get another hit or score another run the rest of the game.
• Left-hander Vidal Nuno, who is vying for the fifth spot in the starting rotation, will make his second official start of the spring on Saturday against the Orioles in Sarasota. Nuno also started the Feb. 25 game against Florida State. Right-handers Brian Gordon, Mark Montgomery, Shane Greene and Danny Burawa will also make the trip to Sarasota.
• Acting manager Rob Thomson said after the game that he didn't think the play on which Eduardo Nunez was kicked was intentional.
"He [Chris Colabello] looked like he was running like he didn't know there were two outs," Thomson said. "I just didn't want that thing to stiffen up [on Nunez], that's why I took it upon myself to get him out of there."
• Russ Canzler was scratched from the starting lineup at third base Friday for precautionary reasons because of hip stiffness. He was replaced by Rob Segedin. Thomson said the stiffness was the result of a play Canzler made in Thursday's game.
"I was hitting ground balls to him before the game and he didn't look like he was moving the way he should," Thomson said.
