The Yankees have their first win. Behind Derek Jeter’s four hits and Ivan Nova’s seven strong innings, the Yankees beat the Orioles 6-2 to snap a season-opening three-game losing streak. The Yankees scored the same number of runs that they scored Friday and Saturday, but tonight it was enough to win because Nova struck out seven, walked none and limited the damage despite 10 Orioles hits. Nova gave up a solo home run in the second inning but didn’t allow another run until back-to-back doubles in the seventh. Jeter had four hits for the 37th time in his career, and the bottom third of the Yankees order combined for four RBIs.
