CLEARWATER, Fla. — CC Sabathia wasn’t near the television in the Yankees’ clubhouse at that moment, but he heard the commotion from a few of his teammates.

Austin Romine, who recently had come out of the game, jumped from his chair at the crack of the bat as Tyler Austin hammered a home run to dead center in the sixth inning.

Hustling back into the main room with the TV, Sabathia, quite seriously, asked, “Was that Andujar?”

No, but it was a legitimate question and certainly a safe guess.

Andujar homered in his first two at-bats in the Yankees’ 6-4 victory over the Phillies on Thursday, giving him four in his last three games.

That provided further drama to a third-base competition that seemed all but settled when the Yankees acquired Brandon Drury, who also homered Thursday, from the Diamondbacks in a three-team trade.

The Thursday outburst made Andujar 6-for-12 to that point. Andujar, who started at DH, did go hitless in his last two at-bats to “drop” to 6-for-14.

“The kid’s a stud,” Drury said. “He’s a good player.’’

Andujar, who turns 23 on Friday, beat the Phillies with a walk-off home run Monday night and followed that with a homer against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

On Thursday he homered on first-pitch fastballs from Nick Pivetta in the second inning and Pedro Beato in the third.

All of his home runs have come after the Yankees completed the deal for Drury, whom general manager Brian Cashman strongly has indicated will be the starting third baseman.

Aaron Boone said he doesn’t buy the idea that Andujar has been motivated by the Drury move.

“I think he can really hit. I think he’s wanting to show that,” Boone said. “I think hunger’s a good thing, I think competition is a good thing . . . I think we’re seeing a young, talented player that’s eager to prove himself and show that he belongs and I think he’s really confident in his ability, and for good reason.”

Despite the trade, Andujar said his approach remains the same.

“The way I see it, can’t really pay too much attention to this being a competition,” he said through his translator. “Just taking it for what it is, me going out there and doing my job. That’s what I like to do. I’m supposed to do my job, and when I get the chance, go out there and do it.”

The righthanded-hitting Drury had a .267/.317/.447 slash line, 13 homers, 37 doubles and 63 RBIs last season and changed his swing during the offseason to try to turn some of those doubles into homers. He connected on a changeup in the fifth Thursday and is 3-for-8.

“I felt like in the past [that’s] a pitch I’d beat in the ground to third base,” said Drury, who wants more of an uppercut in his swing. “Nice to be able to get that pitch in the air.”

Though Cashman declared him the favorite to win the job at third, Drury doesn’t see it that way. “I’ve never had anything given to me,” he said. “I’ve always had to work and earn everything.”

Boone would not address just how much of a “gap” Andujar has to close on Drury in order to be the starter on Opening Day.

“It’s March 1,” Boone said. “We just want to see Drury get comfortable. We want to see Miggy continue to develop and play well and get better and better, and then hopefully at some point present all kinds of nice problems for us. But it’s way early for anything like that.”
