 NEW YORK (AP) - Derek Jeter has homered on the first pitch he saw in his return to the New York Yankees' lineup.
Batting with one out in the first, Jeter drove Matt Moore's offering into the stands in right-center field for New York's first home run in 10 games. The long ball was the first by a Yankees right-handed batter since June 25.
The 39-year-old captain was activated from the 15-day disabled list Sunday.
Jeter sustained a Grade 1 right quadriceps strain running out a groundball July 11 in his first game back from breaking his ankle during the opener of the AL championship series last October.
The 13-time All-Star says the whole experience has been frustrating. He says he hopes to play every day for the Yankees, who have lost six of nine.
