Jeter, Giambi spark victory
Yankees 9, Devil Rays 5
Jason Giambi was one of four Yankees with two hits on Monday. (Kathy Willens/AP)
Derek Jeter singled to erase a two-run deficit, Jason Giambi had three RBIs and Alex Rodriguez went deep late in the Yankees' Opening Day comeback win. Starter Carl Pavano allowed five runs (four earned) in 4 1/3 innings, but the Yankees bullpen excelled. Johnny Damon left with cramps in his calves.
