TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez made his exhibition debut at third base, cleanly handling his only chance, and the New York Yankees beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 Sunday.
With wins in their first three spring games, today the Nationals travel to Tampa to face the New York Yankees. Doug Fister will start for a Nats team missing many regulars in their lineup.

Shortly after they signed outfielder Nick Markakis to a free agent deal this offseason, the former Oriole had to have surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck.
