The Yankees' offense stayed hot with three home runs and New York pulled away late to secure a 7-3 victory over the Phillies on Sunday at Spectrum Field in Clearwater. >> Box Score
Five things to know from Sunday's game
1. James Paxton turned in 4 1/3 hitless innings, but allowed one earned run on two walks with four strikeouts. The lefty lowered his Grapefruit League ERA to 1.54.
2. While Luke Voit homered in the other Yankees' split-squad contest against the Orioles, Greg Bird kept pace in the competition for first base by sending a laser of a solo shot to the opposite field in the sixth inning. It was Bird's second homer of Spring Training. He also walked and struck out.
3. Two batters after Bird blasted off, Gleyber Torres added a solo shot himself, also going to the opposite field for his third long ball of the spring. He finished 1-for-4.
4. Picking up where his teammates on the infield left off, Troy Tulowitzki clubbed a two-run moonshot down the left-field line in the seventh.
5. Dellin Betances, Tommy Kahnle, Danny Coulombe and Anderson Severino combined to toss four scoreless innings out of the bullpen. Chad Green relieved Paxton in the fifth and surrendered two earned runs on a trio of hits while recording the final two outs of the frame.
