The New York Yankees finally won their first game of the season, using four hits by Derek Jeter and an effective pitching performance by Ivan Nova to defeat the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 Monday night. Andruw Jones homered for the Yankees, who averted the fourth 0-4 start in franchise history - the first since 1973. New York began the season by losing three straight to Tampa Bay. Matt Wieters went 4 for 4 with a homer for the Orioles, who were coming off a season-opening, three-game sweep of Minnesota. Jeter singled and scored in the first inning, singled in the third, hit an RBI double in a three-run fourth, sacrificed in the sixth and singled in the eighth to cap a 4-for-4 night. He came in batting .231 with no runs and no RBIs.
