Nice win

A 3-2 nailbiter over the Jays for the Yanks 11th straight home-opener win, a ML record. Girardi made a characteristically anti-Torre move, leaving Wang in to finish the 7th, even with the go-ahead runner in scoring position. Wang escaped, Joba pitched a scoreless eighth (topping out at 97 mph), and Rivera closed the door with a perfect 9th.

Melky made two great plays in the 4th inning, preventing two extra-base hits. He did, however, misplay another liner into a double. He then made up for it with a game-tying HR in the 6th.

It was the Yanks first win against Halladay since 2004!

Moose goes agains AJ Burnett tomorrow night.
