NEW YORK (AP) -Chien-Ming Wang shut down the Toronto Blue Jays for seven innings, making Joe Girardi a winner in his rain-delayed debut as Yankees manager and sending New York to a record-setting 3-2 victory Tuesday night.
After wet weather postponed the festivities Monday, New York beat Roy Halladay (0-1) to win its major league-best 11th consecutive home opener - the 84th and last at Yankee Stadium.
Melky Cabrera homered and made two outstanding catches in center field. Alex Rodriguez scored on Hideki Matsui's grounder in the seventh, breaking a 2-all tie.
Wang (1-0), who lost twice in last year's AL playoffs, got the win. Mariano Rivera worked a perfect ninth for the save.
