Yankees Win On Opening Day

The Yankees beat the D-Rays 9-5 to become 1-0 on the season.

Carl Pavano started the game and didnt look half bad for the first few innings. He was really trying to get into a rythum but Yankees horrid fielding disrupted it. His was keeping his fastball down for most of his outing but towards the end of his outing his fastball was staying up in the zone and gettting hit. Overall he did better then I expected but by no means did a good job. His final line was 4.1 innings, 6 hits, 4 ER, 2 walks, 2 Ks.

Bruney then came in a looked pretty good. He let up a hit that scored a run but it was Pavano's run.

Henn also looked decent. He pitched an inning, giving up 1 hit, and being helped out by a double play.

Newly aquired Luis Vizcaino looked sharp pitching a hitless inning and collecting the win.

Farnsworth wasnt throwing as consistently fast as he usually does but managed to throw some nice pitches. He pitched a scoreless inning giving up a hit and strikeing out 1.

Rivera looked dominate strikeing out the side with ease.

Damon went 1 for 2 with a walk and left early due to cramps in his leg.

Jeter went 1 for 4 with a clutch 2 rbi single that tied the game.

Abreu went 2 for 5 with an rbi but did leave 6 on base.

Arod didnt look sharp early but finished 2 for 5 with a 2-run homer.

Giambi went 2 for 5 with 2 rbis.

Matsui had a rough day going 0-3 but did have a walk.

Posada had a great day going 2 for 4 with a solo homer.

Cano went 1 for 4 with a run.

Phelps worked 2 walks before being taken out for Minky.

Minky laid down a great bunt and went 1 for 1, although, it was more of an error then a hit.
