Yankees postpone opener due to snow

Yankees manager Aaron Boone speaks to reporters before the scheduled New York Yankees home opener against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium Monday Stanton booed after platinum sombrero in Yankee Stadium debut

"In the back of my mind I had a feeling he might sneak it by me again because I was able to battle those two curveballs off".

NY split a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays to open the season, which included Giancarlo Stanton's first game in pinstripes.

Robertson froze Smoak with a cutter to climb back in the count to 2-2.

Toronto has hit at least one home run in each of its first four games. The question is whether the snow will melt in time for first pitch.

NY will be rolling with lefty Jordan Montgomery.

"I'm glad I was thinking the way I was thinking", he said. Donaldson was walked before Smoak hit his second career grand slam.

Tyler Clippard (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning and Seung Hwan Oh finished for his first save.

Over on the Yankees' side, they're fresh off a set versus Toronto.

So, the fact that Donaldson was 2 for 13 in the series - or that Smoak had five hits in his previous eight at-bats, including a 2-run home run off Tommy Kahnle in the seventh inning - did not outweigh the long-term data. Stroman, limited to two starts in spring training because of a sore shoulder, walked three and struck out eight.

Kevin Pillar just accomplished the rare feat of stealing home off of Yankees reliever Dellin Betances to give the Blue Jays a 5-3 lead in the eighth inning.

Stroman allowed four earned runs over five innings.

Didi Gregorius doubled to bring home Stanton and Neil Walker followed with an RBI single.

"Everything's magnified in the early days, good and bad", Boone said.

Sonny Gray allowed one run and seven hits over four innings.

"It can", Boone said. All of that said, NY plays well at home regardless so I'm going Yankees. "They're not having two-seamer tail or something like that, hitting the ground and darting a different way".

"I've never really played in snow", slugger Aaron Judge, who grew up in California, told the Associated Press. The game took three hours three minutes to play.

Tampa Bay heads to NY after scoring nine times and hitting.190 while losing three of four to the Boston Red Sox. RHP Miguel Gonzalez goes for Chicago.
