A week ago, Curtis Granderson had a 50-50 chance to play on Opening Day. Grandy didn’t just play, though; he started and ended the game with terrific catches in center, and hit a game-winning solo shot in the seventh.
Baseball is back. Boy am I glad.
Yankees 6, Tigers 3
Win: Joba Chamberlain
Loss: Phil Coke
Save: Mariano Rivera
Chamberlain, Rafael Soriano and Mo mowed down nine straight Tigers following CC Sabathia’s quality start. In a battle of two of the top bullpens in baseball, the Yankees’ prevailed.
What the Tex?:
Mark Teixeira hit a three-run bomb to right in the third inning. Wait, I thought Tex wasn’t supposed to start hitting until May. *Looks at poll in left sidebar*
Granderson? Yeah, Granderson.
