Yankee Stadium: Twins head to never-win-land


Doesn't it seem right The Captain would be back just in time to face Minnesota?

After missing the first three-plus months of the season with a fractured ankle, Derek Jeter returned to the Yankee lineup to a rousing ovation from the Yankee stadium faithful Thursday against Kansas City.

Jeter, usually so patient at the plate, swung at the first pitch, with predictable results from a career .313 hitter, a base hit.

Jeter was forced to leave his 2013 debut because of tightness in his quad, but he's confident he'll be able to play this weekend.

The Yankees will still be without Alex Rodriguez, who could be facing a league suspension in connection with the Biogenesis scandal, Curtis Granderson, and Mark Teixeira.

It didn't stop New York from sweeping the Twins in a four game series last week, outscoring the hometown nine 29-14.

Game one Friday night from Yankee Stadium at 6:05.
