Morrison also factored into Pineda losing his shutout bid by hitting a home run with one out in the eighth.

Jacoby Ellsbury and Matt Holliday added run-scoring doubles, while Chris Carter contributed an RBI double.

The lefty has earned a spot in the New York Yankees rotation as the No. 5 starter and will pitch Wednesday when the Yankees host Tampa Bay at 1:05 p.m.

Pitcher Michael Pineda starred as the New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-1 in their Major League Baseball home season opener. The Yankees dropped two of three last week in Tampa Bay and then blew a pair of games in Baltimore. The Yankees will celebrate Opening Day once again this afternoon as they prepare to play their home opener vs. the Tampa Bay Rays. Tampa Bay's lineup struck out 12 times and did not draw a walk, lowering its team average to. 249.

Montgomery himself was cut from the team, and along with Chad Green, it was made known that one of them was in line to be promoted when the team needed a fifth starter for the first time on April 16.

If there is going to be any discussion of no-hitters or flawless games, it will derive from a pitching matchup of Jordan Montgomery for the Yankees and Blake Snell for the Rays. "I feel good, though", Pineda said.

Right-handed Blake Snell with a record of 0-1 and 5.40 ERA will make his second start Wednesday. Harper drove in three runs during his first four-hit game since April 17, 2013.

"The kid's got a lot of pitch-ability", Yankees catcher Austin Romine told reporters in spring training. Montgomery is a four pitch pitcher. "We do feel good", Rays manager Kevin Cash said after his team took three of four games from Toronto. Miguel Diaz (1-0) and five other pitchers combined to keep Colorado in check.

Montgomery has excelled in the minor leagues since being drafted by NY in the fourth round of the 2014 MLB Draft.

Pregame ceremonies will include a moment of silence for late baseball executive Katy Feeney, and ceremonial first pitches from former Yankees manager Joe Torre and old NY stars Tino Martinez and Willie Randolph, part of the staff for the championship US team at the WBC. He struck out 11, walked none and threw 67 of 93 pitches for strikes.

Montgomery was on the AA and AAA level in 2016, recording a 14-5 record with a 2.13 ERA in 25 starts. In a 4-1 loss, Pineda was tagged for four runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings.
