Yanks Bounce Back and Bomb Tampa Bay

Yankees 12, D-Rays, 1 [1]

Ah, just what the Yankees needed to avoid a full-scale disaster [2]. The Yankees blasted the Devil Rays in the second game of the season, leaving New York sports writers with nothing much [3] 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 [4] 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 [5] whiffed two in a scoreless ninth.

I didn’t see any of the game. If you did, whatta ya here, whatta ya say?
