    The New York Yankees defeated the Cleveland Indians 6-5 for their 1st win on New Yankee Stadium soil.  The Yankees needed 5 home runs to pull off the win.  Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira homered in the 3rd inning; Melky Cabrera homered in the 4th inning; Robinson Cano homered in the 6th inning; and Derek Jeter’s home run in the bottom of the 8th inning broke up a 5-5 tie and put the Yankees ahead for good.  Although Mariano Rivera gave up 2 hits in the 9th inning to make things interesting, he got it done by striking out Mark DeRosa to end the game.  DeRosa had been 2 for 4 with 2 RBI’s and 2 runs scored.

    The Yankees are now 6-5 on the season – the 1st time they have more wins than losses on the young 2009 campaign.
