NEW YORK (AP) Derek Jeter homered on the first pitch he saw to give the Yankees a jolt in his return from the disabled list and Alfonso Soriano made the captain a winner with a game-ending single that lifted New York over the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.
Playing with Jeter for the first time since being re-acquired by New York from the Cubs on Friday, Soriano homered among his first four hits with the Yankees and drove in three runs.Jeter was activated from the DL for the second time this month and connected against Matt Moore, sending a drive to right-center that ended the Yankees' nine-game homerless drought.
He went 2 for 4 and scored twice.
Brett Gardner drew a leadoff walk from Jake McGee (2-3) in the ninth. McGee then switched belts on his uniform before facing Jeter, threw a wild pitch and received a visit from manager Joe Maddon.
The decision: walk Jeter intentionally.

BEST OF MAXIM
The return of Alfonso Sorinao to New York did not go as planned. Soriano had plenty of chances to do damage against Tampa Bay but managed a lone RBI.
Soriano, 37, was acquired by the Yankees early Friday and thrust into the cleanup role.
In his first game with the Yankees Soriano finished 0-for-5 with an RBI and run scored. The Yankees fell 10-6 to Tampa Bay. The Yankees had Soriano...
Maybe this return from injury is going to stick a little bit better than the last. When Derek Jeter played in his first and only game before today, his first at bat wasn’t incredibly dramatic. He did hit a little dribbler that he legged out for a base hit. Following the game, he went on the DL because of a quad strain. Today, Jeter returned from his second DL stint of the season...

Alfonso Soriano to the Yankees
Even though the trade sending Alfonso Soriano back to the Yankees for a TBD, low-level pitching prospect isn't done yet, he reportedly took a red-eye flight to New York on Thursday night, so let's assume the final details will be worked out this morning. Soriano figures to play left...
The New York Yankees have already made a big splash at the trade deadline by acquiring the hottest bat in Alfonso Soriano. Soriano’s right-handed bat with pop is something sorely needed in New York, and the Bronx Bombers will need to improve at catcher and third base along with the right-handed side of its lineup even more so if it wants to compete.
While New York is not in a desperate...
