Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano and Jorge Posada collected their World Series rings before coming up with multiple hits en route to the New York Yankees 7-5 victory over the Anaheim Angels yesterday at Yankee Stadium. The ceremonies consisted of fans cheering in appreciation for their beloved 2009 lineup that included Angels outfielder Hideki Matsui. The former Fall Classic MVP received the loudest ovation as he walked towards Yogi Berra to hold on to his newest prized possession. Captain Derek Jeter didn’t hesitate to praise his longtime friend and co-worker, saying “he has been one of my favorite teammates I ever played with.”
The Yankees wasted no time getting on the board with a pair of home runs supplied by Nick Johnson and Jeter through the first three innings. New York was able to cruise until the start of the 9th, when Bobby Abreu knocked a three-run homer to right to make it 7-5. From there the Yanks were able to close it out to conclude their first home stand of the 2010 regular season. The Angels will stay in the Bronx for two more games starting Wednesday, April 14th. New York Yankees tickets are now available!
