A big bopper powered the New York Yankees to victory in their most anticipated home opener in years -- Didi Gregorius, not Giancarlo Stanton or Aaron Judge. When the Yankees agreed to acquire Stanton from Miami on Dec. 9, Gregorius playfully tweeted : "Hey Skip am i still batting 4th ???" He sure is. Gregorius hit a pair of three-run homers and had a career-high eight RBIs, helping New York overcame five strikeouts by Stanton in his first game in pinstripes. In Aaron Boone's chilly first home opener as manager, the Yankees broke a seventh-inning tie and romped over the Tampa Bay Rays 11-4 on Tuesday.
