    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Mar 18, 2014
    The game was delayed for seven minutes in the third inning, as Red Sox left fielder Mike Carp noticed a swarm of bees hovering around the visiting bullpen. TAMPA, Fla. Michael Pineda continued to state a convincing case for beginning the year in the rotation and Alfonso Soriano connected for his first home run of the spring as the Yankees pounded the Red Sox, 8-1, in front of a sellout crowd of 11,032 on Tuesday afternoon at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Red Sox starter Felix Doubront was pounded for seven runs and 10 hits in 3 2/3 frames. Ichiro Suzuki skied a run-scoring single to center field, Derek Jeter legged out an RBI infield hit and Mark Teixeira stroked a two-run single to left off Doubront, who walked three and struck out two in a 79-pitch outing.
