Dickerson leads Rays past Yankees

The Rays are 69-64 against the Yankees since the start of 2010 - the only American League team with a winning record against NY in that span - after going 69-133 in their first 12 seasons from 1998-2009.

Cobb, the pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays who struggled last September in his comeback, wowed Rays' fans Wednesday night in a 4-1 victory over the New York Yankees. Pineda, like Sabathia, is in the final year of his contract with the Yankees.

They wasted a record-breaking performance by ace Madison Bumgarner, who retired his first 16 batters and became the first pitcher to hit two home runs on opening day. "There's a long ways to go, but obviously when you get a couple hits early on, it kind of takes the pressure off".

Five relievers finished the five-hitter. Dellin Betances retired Logan Morrison on a bases-loaded grounder that ended the eighth inning and Aroldis Chapman, back with the Yankees after agreeing to an $86 million, five-year contract, threw a flawless ninth.

Traded to the Chicago Cubs by NY last July, Chapman reached 100 miles per hour on four of 14 pitches, including his last, when Daniel Robertson struck out as his bat went flying toward the third-base dugout and into the seats.

Mattingly said they speak about once a year.

New York Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka could not last three innings as he gave up seven runs and was tagged with the loss in his team's 7-3 defeat to the Tampa Bay Rays as the major leagues' regular season got under way Sunday. Torreyes had to reach for a double high-five after crossing the plate. In his 42nd start against the Rays, Sabathia gave up a first-inning single to Evan Longoria and infield hits to Tim Beckham in the fourth and Steven Souza Jr.in the fifth.

"To be honest, I can't quite accept this (outcome) yet", said Tanaka, who had a 0.38 ERA in six games during the preseason. He was penciled in as the No. 2 starter by manager Joe Girardi - a far cry from a year ago, when he was fighting for the last spot in the rotation against Ivan Nova.

Headley, who got off to a awful start previous year, has three consecutive multi-hit games to begin a season for the first time. A pair of home runs added potency to that quick onslaught.

Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits, including a home run off Cobb, but the Yankees got little production from the heart of their lineup in the series. The first run came off of a solo HR on his third pitch of the game. Shoemaker returned seven months to the day after an injury that forced him to have surgery to stop bleeding in his brain.

HOUSTON - Brian McCann and Marwin Gonzalez homered to back a solid start by Lance McCullers and help the Astros to the win.

PHOENIX - Gorkys Hernandez drove in four runs and San Francisco bounced back from blowing a save in its season-opening loss.

St. Louis went 86-76 past year and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2010, but the winter additions of Fowler and reliever Brett Cecil ramped up the optimism for this season.

Holland tossed a ideal ninth for the Rockies, who have opened the season with 8• scoreless innings from their bullpen. "I was definitely the best Ive been on the mound since the Tommy John (surgery)".
