Yankee Stadium is filled with snow, home opener postponed

  • Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge celebrate Stanton’s two-run blast

After fouling off a pair of curveballs, Justin Smoak figured he'd get a fastball from David Robertson.

Snow covers the field before a scheduled New York Yankees' home opener game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium Monday, April 2, 2018 in New York.

"He's one of the best in the game so you know it's going to be a tough at-bat", Smoak said of his nine-pitch encounter with Robertson. "I thought to myself I could try to come set, step off and throw, but I rushed the throw".

Devon Travis added an RBI single for the Blue Jays, who salvaged the split of the series by winning the last two games.

After Smoak clobbered a grand slam off Robertson to create what would be the 7-4 final, the bullpen was responsible for 11 of the 15 runs scored against the Yankees this year.

NY split a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays to open the season, which included Giancarlo Stanton's first game in pinstripes.

Toronto starter Marcus Stroman was on a pitch count after being hampered by a right shoulder injury at spring training. Kahnle walked Josh Donaldson before the homer.

"I'm glad I was thinking the way I was thinking", Smoak said of his decision to look for the fastball. It also left no open base to work carefully to Smoak.


It was Toronto's first straight steal of home since Aaron Hill did it against NY on May 29, 2007.

Stroman allowed four earned runs over five innings. The right-hander allowed one earned run, seven hits and three walks while striking out eight.

Tyler Austin hit two homers and drove in all three runs for the Yankees (2-1).

Didi Gregorius doubled to bring home Stanton and Neil Walker followed with an RBI single.

Roads were slick in New York City during the morning commute. "They held us down after that".

Brandon Drury hit a two-run homer in New York's four-run third inning. But a walk to Giancarlo Stanton and three straight hits proved costly.

"It was a grind for Sonny today", Boone said.

Said scheduled starter Jordan Montgomery, a native of SC: "I've thrown in hail before".
