Lester, Red Sox shut down Yankees on opening day

(Continued)

Even weirder: former gritty Red Sox star Kevin Youkilis was clean-shaved and in Yankees pinstripes.

Making his 10th opening-day start overall, Sabathia settled after the second to allow four runs and eight hits.

Francisco Cervelli, who spent nearly all last season in Triple-A, had a two-run single off Lester in the fourth and made a swift tag on Ellsbury sliding into home plate in the sixth.

NOTES: Former Yankees outfielder and manager Lou Piniella bounced a ceremonial first pitch to groans from the fans. ... Paul McCartney will play a concert at Fenway Park on July 9. ... Yankees GM Brian Cashman, who broke his leg skydiving during spring training, rolled by a group of reporters outside the Yankees clubhouse with his leg up on a self-propelled scooter. ... The New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers both opened at home in 1956. ... Jeter worked out at the Yankees’ complex in Tampa, Fla.
