Rays' Longoria hits 1st home run of new major league season

Sh*t Happened 3/31/17: Rays Opening Day sold out, manatee no longer legally endangered, just real-life endangered

He joined ESPN in 2007 after nine years at the New York Post. Arizona Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb, right, tags out San Francisco Giants' Eduardo Nunez, left, trying to steal third base as umpire D.J. Reyburn (70) watches during the sixth inning of an opening day baseball game Sunday, Apri.

As for the bunt, that was something Headley worked on in spring training. If Game 1 is an indication, there will be no Game 163.

With two outs and the bases loaded, Grichuk lined a 1-1 pitch into the gap in left-center for his second career game-ending hit. Greg Bird was hitless in four at-bats. Aaron Judge and Ronald Torreyes each recorded an RBI in the 2nd and Chris Carter recorded a bases-loaded sac-fly in the top of the 9th. This sets a franchise record that was previously marked from 1934-38. Archer's pitch count was rising, so that seventh inning rally was New York's last best chance to get back in the game. Last year, he was a Cy Young candidate. His strikeout-to-walk ratio was 28/5 this spring and he's coming off his final regular-season tune-up in which he allowed two runs (one earned) over five innings against the Tigers.

It was a rare rocky start for him considering he allowed just four runs combined during the first innings of his last 31 starts. Instead, Tanaka didn't even last three innings.

"That was a tough at-bat", Sanchez said through a translator.

It got worse after the first. Longoria hit a two-run homer to left field to push the lead back to 5-2. In the third, Logan Morrison hit a solo shot. "We got all the right pieces and i think we're going to be contenders not pretenders". Opening Day results stick out because there is nothing else. He also gave up a career-high 25 home runs.

Early reports of the Major League Baseball 2017 showed disappointing results as far as Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees are concerned. He emerged as a surprisingly elite speed threat with 40 SB previous year and posted a consistent.324 OBP while going 6-for-12 at Chase Field. He's the ace of a suspect staff.

Joe Girardi mercifully pulled Tanaka after 2.2 innings and an early 7-2 deficit to the Rays. Tanaka was supposed to be the one sure thing, and he probably will be. "I just don't", said Darvish, who is 46-30 with a 3.29 ERA in 100 starts with the Rangers. It does, however, present a very simple adjustment for the Yankees coaches in the future: maybe just don't have Tanaka pitch on Opening Day. But, he walked Keirmaier to bring Longoria to the plate again and he made Tanaka pay.

He also has a history of success against the Rays at Tropicana Field, where he's won all three of his career starts with a 1.80 ERA. You just want the suffering to end.

"Basically, forget it", Rothschild said.

The Yankees didn't have almost as much success, posting nine hits, six of which came in the second and seventh innings.
