Yankees Lose On Opening Day To Boston, 8-2

CC Sabathia struggled through his first 5 innings of the 2013 MLB regular season, allowing four runs and walking four batters. His pitching line was just a small example of a painful start to the season, with very few bright spots from the entire team. For the first time since 1986, the New York Yankees lost a home game on Opening Day, going down the Boston Red Sox 8-2 in the Bronx.

In the second inning, Boston would get the scoring started with four runs, including a 2-run single from Shane Victorino. The Yankees would bounce back with a two-run single from catcher Francisco Cervelli in the bottom of the 4th, but that would be as close as New York would get.

Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester would provide an average start, but the team didn’t need much else, as he gave up the Yankees’ only two runs over five innings and struck out 7 batters. The two teams will meet again on Wednesday night, first pitch at around 7:05 p.m. You can catch all of the action on 104.5 The Team!
