The Miami Marlins finished their spring training schedule with a 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees at Marlins Park on Saturday. It was the second game of a two-game set between both clubs prior to the regular season. Both teams combined with seven hits as New York had four and Miami got three.
New York got out to the early lead for the second consecutive game on a solo home run. Dustin McGowan got the start for Miami and gave up a homer on the first pitch of the game to Yankees lead-off hitter Jacoby Ellsbury which landed in the right-field stands.
Miami answered back quickly in the bottom of the first to tie it 1-1 against Luis Severino. Dee Gordon began with a base hit into right field and Marcell Ozuna followed with a walk. Both runners advanced one base when Christian Yelich grounded out to first. Giancarlo Stanton would drive in Gordon with a sacrifice fly to left field.
The Marlins took the eventual lead during the third inning. Ozuna reached second with one out on a throwing error and moved to third when Yelich flew out to center. Stanton knocked in his second run of the game with a base hit into center field.
