Game #1

Opponent: At Tampa Bay Rays

Result: 7-3 loss

2017 Record: 0-1

For the sixth consecutive season, the New York Yankees have lost on Opening Day. This sets a franchise record that was previously marked from 1934-38.

Gary Sanchez – ‘The Kraken’ got off to a slow start to begin the season, taking an 0-5 in Sunday’s loss. He did however hit a ball in his first at bat 115.7 miles per hour off of Rays starter Chris Archer’s leg. The hit ball resulted in a 1-3 put-out but was the hardest hit ball in the youngster’s career. Sanchez had an opportunity in the top of the 7th inning to get the bombers back in the game as he came up with the bases loaded. Archer ended up retiring Gary as he grounded out to second base, ending the threat.

Aaron Judge – Judge went 1 -4 with a run batted in. Aaron put the Yankees on the board when he hit an RBI double in the top of the 2nd inning. He crushed a first pitch slider off of Chris Archer down the right field line.

Greg Bird – Bird made several spectacular plays in the field and went 0-4 with a walk in his return to action.

Jonathan Holder – Holder made his 2017 debut as he pitched a scoreless seventh inning. He gave up two hits and struck out two.

CC Sabathia looks to get the Yankees in the win column for the first time this season on Tuesday as he is set to square off against Jake Odorizzi at 7:10 pm.
