The Yankees split-squad took care of business with a 5-2 win over the Red Sox in Fort Myers, Fla. >> Box score
5 things to know from Saturday's game...
1) Jordan Montgomery got the start for the Yankees in Fort Myers. The lefty, who the Yankees may be depending much more on now that the rotation has suffered injuries to Luis Severino and James Paxton, had a very strong showing, pitching two scoreless innings while striking out four hitters and allowing just one hit.
2) Gio Urshela, batting third and starting at third base, went 1-for-2 with a walk. He also scored two of the Yankees' five runs.
3) Clint Frazier, who homered in a game earlier this week, got the start in right field, batting cleanup. Frazier went 1-for-3, but he did drive in a run with an RBI double.
4) Right-hander Nick Tropeano had a bit of a rough outing on Saturday. In 1.1 innings, Tropeano only allowed one hit, but he also walked a batter and allowed two earned runs.
5) Erik Kratz, who is competing for the backup catcher job behind Gary Sanchez, went 2-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.
The Yankees will be on the road Sunday for a 1:05PM matchup with the Detroit Tigers. David Hale is scheduled to start against Spencer Turnbull.
