Yanks Bounce Back and Bomb Tampa Bay

Ah, just what the Yankees needed to avoid a full-scale disaster . The Yankees blasted the Devil Rays in the second game of the season, leaving New York sports writers with nothing much  to write about for the next five days. Pity for them, but good for us fans. Jorge Posada homered twice and collected six RBI. Fittingly, Hideki Matsui  also homered. Jason Giambi, Kenny Lofton and Gary Sheffield also had good offensive games. Kevin Brown allowed a run in the first, but was his usual stingy self. He threw seven innings, allowed six hits and struck out five. Tom Gordon pitched a scoreless eighth, and Mariano Rivera  whiffed two in a scoreless ninth.
I didn’t see any of the game. If you did, whatta ya here, whatta ya say?
