Derek Jeter was 3 for 5 with two RBI, while Eddie Murray added two hits and two RBI in the win. Jackie Robinson was 2 for 5 with a home run and three RBI in the loss.

In the other game, Kenny Lofton was 2 for 5 with three RBI, while Rick Ankiel pitched 6 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts for the win as the Fort Lauderdale Flash beat the Golden Glovers 6-3.

Ankiel also had two hits and a RBI, while Aroldis Chapman pitched 2 2/3 innings with six strikeouts for the save.
