The Wanger Gets The Nod Today *UPDATED*

March 6, 2008

Peter Abraham’s got the lineups posted for today’s spring training game against the Cincinnati Reds, and Chien-Ming Wang gets the nod on the mound.

Wang’s nickname was “Tiger” back when he was with Trenton.  I don’t think I’ve heard that used since he’s been with the Yankees.  Wonder if he still has it…

Looks like four other Thunder alums will see the field at some point, so check out those lineups…

UPDATED: Chien-Ming Wang’s line today: 0.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 0 K

Scott Patterson came in and got the next four outs.  Kyle Farnsworth and Darrell Rasner have been in since.  The Wanger got crushed.  Yes, it’s just spring training, but the Yankees pitching has struggled a little bit so far this year.

The Reds are just crushing the Yankees at this point.  It’s 10-0 in the 5th.  Rasner gave up a grand slam to Edwin Encarnacion after walking the bases loaded.

Cincinnati held on to win 12-8.
