5 things to know from Wednesday's game...
1) J.A. Happ continued to build upon what's been a very impressive spring for the lefty. Happ pitched 4.0 strong innings against the Phillies, allowing just two hits without a run. He also struck out six batters, lowing his ERA this spring to 1.00.
2) Speaking of strong springs, Gleyber Torres delivered for the Yankees again on Wednesday night with a first-inning RBI single, scoring Brett Gardner and giving the Yankees an early 1-0 lead. The 23-year-old is now hitting .313 this spring.
3) DJ LeMahieu had a typical multi-hit performance. Leading off and playing second base, LeMahieu went 2-for-3 with a walk, reaching base three times. He upped his batting average to a very impressive .368.
4) Michael King, the 24-year-old right-hander who could potentially be in the mix for the Yankees' fifth spot in the rotation, had an up-and-down appearance. After recording three groundouts and no hits in the fifth, the sixth was a different story, as King allowed a double to Logan Forsythe and a two-run home run to Jay Bruce, cutting the Yankees' lead to one run.
5) Chris Iannetta went 1-for-2 with a walk and an RBI. As he continues to compete for the backup catcher job behind Gary Sanchez, Iannatta is now hitting .545 this spring with a 1.370 OPS.
The Yankees will be back in action on Thursday afternoon against the Detroit Tigers. First pitch is set for 1:05 PM from Lakeland, Fla.
