CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Domonic Brown hit his sixth homer of the spring, Kyle Kendrick threw six impressive innings and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Yankees 4-1 Tuesday.

Derek Jeter was scratched from New York’s lineup for “precautionary” reasons because of stiffness in his surgically repaired left ankle, but the team captain could be back Wednesday.

Kendrick allowed one unearned run and two hits, striking out three. Brown continued his torrid hitting and has all-but-officially assured himself a starting spot in the outfield. Brown is hitting .397.

Ryan Howard hit his fifth homer of the spring.

Yankees lefty Boone Logan, who had been out with an elbow injury, struck out two in a scoreless inning in his first appearance this spring. New York starter Adam Warren allowed two runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings.
