Saying the Yankees Opening Day didn’t go so well would be an understatement. CC Sabathia went six innings, charged with six runs on eight hits and a walk, striking out six. Jeter went 1-for-3 with a run scored and was hit by a pitch, while Mark Teixeira was 2-for-3 with a walk in his first game since last June.
The Yankees showed some sign of life in the eighth as they scored twice, but it was too little too late. The Astros ultimately cruised to an easy 6-2 win over the Yanks.
Is this a sign of things to come for the season, or will they be able to shake off this early loss and move on?
