It took an unknown to beat a bunch of unknowns.
Yangervis Solarte batted above. 400 in Spring, making the big league Opening Day roster for the first time as a 26-year-old. I think he had some villain-killed-off-after-half-a-second spot appearances with the Texas Rangers or something.
The Yankees won its first game with a brand new lineup, and wouldn’t you know, it came with the best starting pitching performance.
I’m still not sure if the Astros finally have a major league team, though I’ve liked Happy Bo Porter and his Hoes Train driven by Capt. Dexler Fowler. I can’t wait for George Springer.
They put on a show against a more expensive set of superstars, but it took a young kid’s double to help New York begin a short rally with two runs spotted by Ivan Nova. He was driven in by veteran Carlos Beltran to pad the scoreboard 4-2.
