Derek Jeter Makes Season Debut As The Yankees Beat The Royals

Derek Jeter made his triumphant return to the Yankees line-up today, although it may be short lived. The Captain left the 8-4 victory in the 8th inning after experiencing tightness in his quad.

Jeter did contribute a hit, a run and an RBI in his season debut, providing a new energy to a line-up that has struggled to score runs all season long. Lyle Overbay delivered the game’s biggest hit, a go-ahead two RBI single in bottom of the 5th, which put the team up 5-4. The Bombers tacked on two more insurance runs in the frame, and were able to coast easily to the victory.

Andy Pettitte gave up three earned runs over 5.2 innings of work to earn his seventh win of the season. Shawn Kelley, David Robertson and Boone Logan closed the door on the Royals, not allowing a run in the final three plus innings of the game.

The win moves the Yankees to 50-42 on the season as they welcome the struggling Twins to the Bronx. Derek Jeter is set to undergo an MRI later today, and his status for tomorrow’s game is unclear.
