Go figure. A-Rod homers in 1st exhibition game

A-Rod had a blast in this year's spring training opener, literally.  He hit a two-run homer in the fourth, scoring Robinson Cano, who singled to lead off the inning.  A-Rod walked in two of his other at bats.

Other game notes: Brett Gardner led off the game with a homer, but also was charged with a throwing error. . .Brett Tomko had a strong Yankee debut, pitching two scoreless innings, only surrendering one hit. . .Kevin Cash stole a base. . .He's never attempted to steal in his six-year MLB career. . .My man Austin Jackson hit a double, I'm telling you. . .Watch Phil Hughes on YES tomorrow (1:15 p.m. ET), as he gets the starting nod against the Rays.
