The #Yankees swept the Orioles in #clutch fashion! Recently retired Jorge Posada will throw out the first pitch in the Yankees home opener!

The NY Yankees swept the Baltimore Orioles, finishing them off in clutch fashion! Nick Swisher swung a big bat, and hit a #clutch two-run HR in the top of the 10th inning, last night, to help the #Yankees beat the Orioles, 6-4! Curtis Granderson hit his first HR of the season and knocked in three RBI’s! #Mo got his second save of the season, and now the Yankees can go home with a .500 record after starting the season (0-3)!

#HOF-sooner Jorge Posada will throw out the first pitch in tommorrows afternoon game: LA Angels vs. NY Yankees 1:05PM EST YES! Posada will receive the “Pride of the Yankees Award” at the Yankees Welcome Home Dinner in Manhattan! Mike Mussina, Bernie Williams, Tino Martinez and Paul O’Neill have followed that by throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Check out the comments below!

“That’s great, it’s going to be emotional knowing Jorge,’’ Mariano Rivera said of his former batterymate, who retired this past January instead of seeking  another team to play for when it was clear his days in The Bronx were finished.

“I am sure it wasn’t his idea, but it doesn’t surprise me,’’ Derek Jeter said of his close friend returning so soon. nypost
