Yankees' home opener imperiled after Bronx is bombed by snow

Yankees' home opener imperiled after Bronx is bombed by snow

New York's opener against Houston at Yankee Stadium two years ago was postponed because of a forecast of bad weather and rescheduled for the following day.

For only the fourth time in the last 26 years, the New York Yankees will introduce a new manager to fans attending their home opener.

Roberto Osuna pitched a ideal ninth inning for Toronto, and the Blue Jays picked up their first win of the season.

On Saturday, he brought out Dellin Betances for a second inning only to see him allow two runs. "I'm comfortable with the matchup, just didn't get it done today".

"We liked him better against Smoak and I think he felt better with the Smoak matchup", Boone said. Tampa Bay is using a four-man rotation and plans to turn to its bullpen to get through a game every fifth day. On Sunday, Brad Miller hit a solo homer and Duffy bagged two more hits. In his 29 starts and 9-7 record last season, Montgomery posted a 3.88 ERA with 140 hits and 67 earned in 155.1 innings overall.

Though the Yankees return to the Bronx Monday for their home opener a respectable 2-2, there was no question the setback was disheartening. Austin Pruitt was slated to start for Tampa.

The Yankees, after scoring four runs in the third inning against Patchogue-Medford's Marcus Stroman, led the entire way, pulling into the seventh inning with a 4-1 lead.

NY answered with four two-out runs in the third.
