Jukich picks up win against Yankees
Duluth native Ben Jukich picked up a victory in
his first official spring training action on Monday in the Cincinnati
Reds’ 13-11 victory over the New York Yankees.
Jukich pitched a scoreless seventh inning. He
yielded a hit and walk, but he got out of the inning with a strikeout
and two flyouts. This is Jukich’s third spring training, but
it is the first time he has been invited to big-league camp.
