"I feel like I have enough games in. I think we have two more exhibition games down there to get ready. Then, we've got to play three games down there before the tournament starts, but I'm ready. I feel good," Schoop said.

Chad Green started for the Yankees and allowed one hit and walked a batter in two innings. Green is competing for one of the two vacant slots in New York's rotation.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge drove in New York's first run with a fielder's choice in the first inning, and also showed off his arm in right, throwing out Hyun Soo Kim at second after Kim tried to turn a single into a double.

"We've seen him throw before, so we were not surprised," manager Joe Girardi said.
