Granderson, Teixeira Help Yanks Beat Tigers 3-31-2011

Curtis Granderson hit a go-ahead homer leading off the seventh inning and Mark Teixeira had a three-run shot off Justin Verlander, lifting New York over the Detroit Tigers 6-3 Thursday in the first regular-season game played in the Bronx in March.
CC Sabathia pitched six workmanlike innings, Derek Jeter added a sacrifice fly in the seventh using his new stride-less swing and Mariano Rivera, wearing his socks high for perhaps the first time, earned his first save and 560th of his career.
Newcomers Russell Martin and Rafael Soriano did their part as the Yankees got off to a quick start on a gray, blustery, 42-degree day.
With spring in the air and baseball season underway, baseball fans may want to check out a new exhibit at Saginaw’s Castle Museum.
It’s called Peanuts At Bat and it features Charlie Brown, Snoopy and their cartoon friends playing baseball.
The exhibit is on loan from the Charles Schulz Museum in California.
Schulz was the creator of the Charlie Brown cartoon series. That exhibit opens Friday.
