The Yankees (2-1) scored early and often, but were forced to hang on for dear life to scratch out a win. Ahead 8-1 after 3 innings, The Bombers gave up 3 in the top of the fourth thanks to a 3-run home run by Russell Martin.

Up 11-5 with one out in the top of the 7th, SP Michael Pineda was pulled after walking 2 consecutive batters. His replacement, RP Jared Burton promptly gave up a home run to 3B Jamie Donaldson to cut the gap to 11-8.

CP Dellin Betances didn't show much either. Called upon in the 9th to hold the 3 run lead, Encarnacion grounded out, but 3 consecutive singles by Donaldson, Navarro and Martin plated a run and put the tying run on base. Betances luckily induced a game-ending 4-6-3 double play.

In injury news, Brett Gardner (black eye) and Stephen Drew (strained tricep) are expected to miss a few days. Neither are expected to be put on the DL.

With the win, the Yankees move to 2-1 and are tied for the division lead with the Orioles and Red Sox.

After only a brief time into his tenure, Schultzy has made some interesting moves that have Hornets fans talking. In an effort to restore the team to its former glory of the 1990s, the team has brought back its old uniforms and court design. Even more exciting are the changes in the player personnel department. While there have been no blockbuster trades, the team will look different than in years past with an emphasis on feeding the post and kicking out to three point shooters.

Here is a summary of the Hornets' offseason transactions:
-Acquire Nick "Swaggy P" Young and Carlos Boozer from LA Lakers for Mo Williams, Marvin Williams, 2017 first round pick, and 2015 2nd round pick
-Acquire 2015 first round pick and Chris Babb (waived) from Boston Celtics for Gerald Henderson and 2016 first round pick
-Sign PG Nate Robinson to 1yr/$3.10M deal

The Hornets have also picked up a new head coach in Logan Schmidt who will be taking the reigns of a NBA team for the first time in his career. Known as a talented defensive specialist, the young coach will inherit a group that posted 43 wins last season while also allowing only the 4th fewest PPG (97.1). After being swept in the first round by the Lebron-led Miami Heat, the Hornets hope to build on that experience and make a deep run in this year's playoffs.

Here is the roster for this year's squad:
2014-15 Charlotte Hornets Roster
25Al JeffersonC296'10"289$13.50M
15Kemba WalkerPG246'1"184$3.45M
14 Michael Kidd-GilchristSF216'7"232$5.02M
5Carlos BoozerPF326'9" 266$3.25M
0Nick YoungSF/SG296'7"210$4.99M
8 Bismack BiyomboC226'9"245$4.09M
40 Cody ZellerPF/C227'0"240$4.03M
1 Lance StephensonSG/SF246'5"228$9.00M
21Nate RobinsonPG/SG305'9"180$3.10M
11 Noah VonlehPF/C196'10"247$2.44M
22Brian RobertsPG/SG286'1"180$2.73M
44 Jeff TaylorSF/SG256'7"225$915K
19P.J. HairstonSF/SG216'6"229$3.80M

Coach Schmidt was asked by local reporters the status of his starting five and he revealed that he would be going with Walker, Stephenson, Kidd-Gilchrist, Boozer, and Jefferson to start the season. Young players such as Zeller, Biyombo, and Vonleh are all expected to push for playing time, while veterans Nate Robinson and Nick Young will provide a spark off the bench. Brian Roberts and Jeff Taylor may also contribute, but at this point, they will have to impress to win any significant minutes. Rookie P.J. Hairston is the complete wild card of the group, hoping to resurrect his career after spending last year in the D-League following his dismissal from North Carolina for numerous violations of team conduct.

As the new NBA season approaches, one cannot help but be cautiously optimistic about this Hornets team. With an average age of 25.08 years old, they are a relatively young team with enough veteran leadership to compete for a division crown and a top 4 seed in the infamously weak Eastern Conference. Only time will tell if the Hornets are ready to take that next step as contenders or if they can deliver on Schultzy's promise of a title within 3 years, but regardless of what happens, they finally have the city of Charlotte buzzing over basketball again.

The Toronto Blue Jays (1-1) scored early and often in an 8-4 blowout over the Yankees today. Encarnacion started the scoring in the top of the 1st with a 3-run homer to left off starter C.C. Sabathia. This wouldn't be the only inning Sabathia struggled in the game.

The Yankees tried to claw their way back into the game in the bottom of the inning, scoring 2 runs on singles and stolen bases from Jacoby Ellsbury and Brett Gardner (who drove in Ellsbury) and a sacrifice fly to deep left fiels by Brian McCann that plated Brett Gardner all the way from 2nd base.

In the top of the fifth, with Reyes on first and 2 out, the Blue Jays rallied to score 4 runs on a walk by Encarnacion, followed by and RBI single by Donaldson and a 3-run home run by Valencia before Sabathia was removed from the game in favor of rookie RP Jim Miller.

The Yankees never recovered although a couple of late solo home runs by Chase Headley and Didi Gregorius were a promising offensive sign, the Yankees never get closer than a 4 run deficit. Both teams are now 1-1 going into the final game of the series. Michael Pineda is slated to pitch against Aaron Sanchez in the rubber game tomorrow.

Hernandez goes the distance, as Mariners take series from Oakland

Oakland - Felix Hernandez was in his groove, as a late ninth inning RBI single was the only thing standing between him and his first shutout of the season, as he hurled eleven strikeouts in a 5-1 victory for Seattle. Robinson Cano chipped in on the offensive side as he clubbed two solo home runs for his first multi-HR game in a Mariner uniform. That was all the offense Felix needed as he was dominant as always. The Mariners will now head down the coastline from the bay area to Los Angeles where they will take on the Dodgers for a three game interleague tilt. It will be James Paxton going in the opener against Zack Greinke for the Dodgers.

A's rally to walk-off Mariners

Oakland - The Seattle Mariners could only muster two runs from their ten hits on Saturday, as the Oakland bullpen was able to stifle the Mariners after their ace Sonny Gray left early with a hand bruise. Still that advantage wasn't enough for the M's as Oakland crawled back against a Mariners pen that was already taxed from yesterday's thirteen inning affair. Eventually rookie Tyler Olson had to come in to pitch the ninth, and Oakland immediately took advatage with a lead-off triple from Eric Sogard, followed up by a Sac Fly to send the Mariners home with an L. The two teams will be back at it again tomorrow afternoon as the King Felix Hernandez will square off against Scott Kazmir for Oakland.

The New York Yankees won the opening game at home against the Blue Jays 5-3. Carlos Beltran got off to a hot start, after a pedestrian spring (.173/.259/.269) with a 2 run home run in the first inning.

In the fourth inning, the Yanks went up 3-0. After Chase Headley grounded to center for a single with one out, Alex Rodriguez doubled to center, moving Headley to third. Brian McCann was then intentionally walked to load the bases in order to pitch to light hitting Didi Gregorius. Gregorius promptly dribbled a ground ball just out of the reach of the second baseman driving in Headley to move the Yankee lead to 3-0.

The Blue Jays tied the game in top of the 5th, on a leadoff walk by Navarro, followed by back to back homers from Martin and Saunders. 2 pitches later, SP Masahiro Tanaka was removed from the game with an oblique injury. It's not expected for Tanaka to be moved to the DL, but may have to skip a start.

In 3 innings of relief, Jose Ramirez performed admirably, surrendering 3 hits and striking out 3.

The Yanks broke the tie in the bottom of the 7th when Gregorius led off with a single to center. After Stephen Drew was called out on strikes (his 3rd strikeout of the game), Jacoby Ellsbury doubled to right. Brett Gardner was intentionally walked to get to Mark Teixeira. Teixeira (as Gregorius had done in the 4th) destroyed the strategy by doubling over the center fielder's head scoring Ellsbury & Gregorius.

With the win the Yankees are 1-0, the loss drops Toronto to 0-1.

Royals fall in Rubber match against Minnesota

Jason Vargas did not have his best stuff today as he surrendered 4 runs in 1 and a third innings, with a minimal offensive effort, The Royals just never could get out of that rut. One high note was the pitching of Brandon Finnegan and Jason Frasor; who both only surrendered a total of 1 run through the rest of the contest including Frasor striking out 5 of the 6 batters he faced.
The Royals will be back at it tomorrow night as they return home to face the Oakland Athletics,
Jeremy Guthrie will take the bump against A's ace Sonny Gray.
