Jeter Homers in Yanks Win

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Derek Jeter ended a home run drought of 161 at-bats in his final regular-season game against the Los Angeles Angels, and the New York Yankees kept Hector Santiago winless in seven starts with a 9-2 victory on Wednesday night.

Vidal Nuno (1-0) allowed a run and four hits in 6 1-3 innings, struck out three and retired 14 of his last 15 batters. The left-hander’s only other victory in seven big league starts was May 13 of last season, when he pitched five scoreless innings of three-hit ball at Cleveland in a 7-0 decision.

Unless both clubs meet in the playoffs, this was Jeter’s swan song against the Angels, who dropped two of three in the Bronx 1 1-2 weeks ago. Jered Weaver, Albert Pujols, Mike Trout and Howie Kendrick carried a 12-foot-long pinstriped paddleboard with Jeter’s No. 2 and the Yankee logo to the middle of the diamond and presented it to him following a milestone-studded video tribute as the sellout crowd of 44,083 roared its approval.
