Montgomery went the distance, allowing four hits, walking one and striking out three.

After an off day, 24-year-old LHP Jordan Montgomery will make his major league debut for NY on Wednesday after winning the No. 5 starter's job. He entered the game in the eighth inning and allowed three runs, two earned, on four hits including a home run.

Weeks exited the game with neck and right shoulder soreness during a violent collision at first base with Gardner.

Pineda's bid for a ideal game ended one batter later, when Evan Longoria lined Pineda's 75th pitch of the night - a first-pitch slider - into left field for a clean double. Castro put up two hits and a run on Wednesday, while Headley popped two hits with two runs. His final pitching line was 7.2 innings, two hits and one run allowed to go along with 11 strikeouts.

The bad news, naturally, was how close they came to the 24th in major-league history in the 8-1 loss to the Yankees.

Boston was third at $2.7 billion, followed by the Chicago Cubs ($2.675 billion), San Francisco ($2.65 billion) and New York Mets ($2 billion).

Girardi was right when he said for Pineda to be successful, "everything (in his mechanics) has to be on time". Erasmo Ramirez came on, and the Yankees made it 6-3 on a ground ball out before the long inning came to an end.

Fans were treated to a Bronx Bombers win at Yankee Stadium Monday for Opening Day in the Bronx.

"We've got to play a cleaner game for sure to win", Rays manager Kevin Cash said. You could see the determination and the focus, and that has always seemed to rattle the 28-year old who is supposed to be so much a part of the Yankees future. He made 102 pitches with 67 for strikes. Cash told reporters Weeks avoided serious injury but was clear with reporters that Weeks's inexperience at the position (just three career starts a first) was not a factor.

Mixing up four pitches to both sides of the plate, Montgomery was at his best when in trouble.

Montgomery was a fourth round pick, the No. 122 overall selection, by the New York Yankees in the 2014 MLB Draft. He's 6-6. He's left-handed.

The Rays and Yankees conclude the series Thursday night, with Matt Andriese facing Luis Severino.
