Among the memorable games involving Derek Jeter, Monday’s home opener against the Baltimore Orioles will not vault to the top of the list. There was no signature moment or defining play that put Jeter’s indelible stamp on the game.
But there was some bad news: The Yankees announced after the game that David Robertson, who took over as closer this year after the retirement of Mariano Rivera, had a Grade 1 groin strain and would be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Robertson has two saves this season and allowed one hit in three scoreless innings.
The Yankees won, 4-2, and improved to 4-3, moving them over .500 for the first time this season.
Derek Jeter went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the Yankees' 4-2 win over the Orioles.
