Yankees beat Boston without Jeter

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Eduardo Nunez got a hit, drove in a run and made an error while filling in for shortstop Derek Jeter as the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 4-0 Wednesday.

Before the game, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he didn't know whether Jeter will be available to play on opening day. Jeter got an anti-inflammatory shot in his surgically repaired left ankle and missed his second straight exhibition.

Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis went 0 for 4 playing against his longtime former team.

Boston starter Felix Doubront allowed four runs and seven hits over 4 1-3 innings.

Yankees ace CC Sabathia pitched in a minor league game and gave up one run in six innings. He's set to start the opener April 1 against the Red Sox.
