A first-time All-Star in 2015 who lost an AL-leading 19 times last season, Archer (1-0) limited NY to two runs and seven hits.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The drive from the New York Yankees' spring training home in Tampa to Tropicana Field, the site of their regular-season opener, is about a half an hour in light traffic.
The Arizona Diamondbacks came from behind in in the bottom of the 9th inning, scoring two runs in thrilling fashion to topple the San Francisco Giants 6-5 for a win to open the year.

"It's a special day for baseball, the very first game of the season", Tanaka added through a translator.

In April, Springsteen and the band canceled their show in Greensboro because of HB2, which Van Zandt described as an "evil virus". It now moves on to the Senate floor, where it must survive two additional votes before moving to the House for a final vote.
Following a day off, right-handers Jake Arrieta of the Cubs and Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals get the ball on Tuesday night. "I can't take it back", Tanaka said through a translator. One inning into the new season, the Spring Training juggernaut Yankees were down 3-0. They are but two players on the 25 man roster, and need help for the Rays to return to contention.
Overall, Tanaka just never really looked like himself on the mound.
Back-to-back singles by Castro and Chase Headley - Castro beat out an infield single and Headley squibbed a grounder to beat the shift - set up Aaron Judge for an RBI double. He crushed a first pitch slider off of Chris Archer down the right field line. He also struck out 54 batters compared to just four walks, while the Rays only hit.204/.222/.413 against him.
The catcher almost came through, but his bloop down the right-field line fell just foul. "There were some great at bats with two outs continuing the inning and then we got some big hits after that".
