Jesus Montero Picks Up 1st Hit in Yankee Victory

Jesus Montero picked up his first major league hit in a Yankees 6-4 come from behind victory over the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium Saturday.

Montero only went 1-for-3 before being pinch hit for by Jorge Posada so it wasn’t like it was a huge game for the rookie, but he lined a shot to left field in the 6th to get his first hit behind him. Now maybe he can relax and start getting his major league career going.

Bartolo Colon started and despite having some decent stuff he allowed four runs over 6.1 innings thanks to a pair of homers allowed. Boone Logan came on in relief and got two outs to get out of the 7th inning. David Robertson pitched a scoreless 8th and 9th for his first save of the season.

Francisco Cervelli got a big hit in the second inning, a two-run homer that briefly gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead. They trailed 4-3 going into the 7th inning when Robinson Cano broke open the game with a two-run double. Nick Swisher singled him in to push the score to 6-4.
