The Yankees got a 14-pitch scoreless first inning effort from CC Sabathia. Sabathia, though, allowed two base hits. C.J. Wilson one-upped his lefty opponent by needing just 12 pitches to go 1-2-3 through the top of the Yankee order.
Derek Jeter led off the Yankee half with a grounder up the middle to shortstop Elvis Andrus' left, but Andrus was able to range over, pick it, and make a strong throw to first to beat Jeter to the bag. Nick Swisher followed with a fly out to center, just to Josh Hamilton's right, and the inning concluded with a Robinson Cano groundout to second.
Wilson looks settled in early, and we move to the second still scoreless.
