Home Opener A Success
Yanks defeat Angels in home opener 7 to 5. Andy Pettitte pitched a score-less six innings. Derek Jeter hit a home run in the bottom of the third into center field. Mariano Rivera finished out the game of the Yankees home opener. It was an emotional moment for Hideki Matsui when he stepped into the batters box and the record breaking crowd welcomed him back, not as a Yankee but as the MVP of the 2009 World Series Champs. Yankees had hot bats from the get go, if they keep this up and keep the pitching strong I say they can get to the World Series for a repeat.
