NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguez hit a milestone home run. Hiroki Kuroda was pinstripe sharp in his Yankee Stadium debut. Even recently retired teammate Jorge Posada joined in the festivities.

Conglaturations!! Mr. Kuroda, I hope your great activities as a member of New York Yankees.
Kuroda (1-1) gave up five hits and exited after Bobby Abreu's infield single that led off the ninth. He struck out six and walked two.

In his first start since leaving the Dodgers, Kuroda struggled for New York, allowing six runs -- four earned -- at Tampa Bay. Despite saying he would have butterflies in his initial start at home, Kuroda worked through the Angels' lineup and didn't allow a runner to reach second until the fifth inning. He twice induced double-play grounders to wipe out singles.
Kuroda received an ovation from the 49,386 fans as he walked off the field. It was the first time he had pitched into the ninth inning in a year.

"I always try to have the same approach no matter where I pitch or when I pitch," Kuroda said through a translator. "I was able to pitch with confidence."
Pujols grounded into a double play in the ninth against David Robertson, who got the final three outs.
Making his first visit to the new ballpark in the Bronx, the three-time NL MVP said hours before the first pitch: "No disrespecting the history of this organization, the Yankees, but I take it like every other park. ... At the end, it's just a game."
Unfortunately, this game has been too much like the rest for the Angels early this season. Los Angeles has lost five of six and is 2-5. ...
