BOSTON - Drained by the emotion of the storybook ending to his Yankee Stadium career, Derek Jeter took the night off. Toronto Blue Jays Jersey .The New York Yankees won anyway.Jeter and the rest of the teams regulars watched from the dugout as a lineup with five rookies a€” and no one who played more than 47 games for the Yankees this season a€” beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Friday night.He had such a special night last night, New York starter Chris Capuano said. I think everyone can understand him just wanting to take a day.Physically and mentally fatigued by his run up to retirement, Jeter asked for the night off but said he would be the designated hitter on Saturday and Sunday in the last two games of the season for both non-playoff teams.That would give Red Sox fans a chance to cheer for the star they rooted against during the teams long rivalry. They wanted to see him Friday night, booing in the ninth whenever a hitter came out to the Yankees on-deck circle and it wasnt Jeter as a pinch hitter.Fans in a sold-out Fenway Park chanted his name throughout.It doesnt surprise me, said David Robertson, who earned his 39th save. Theres a lot of Yankee fans in the seats tonight and I know that the Red Sox fans love and respect him.I dont know if they love him, he said with a grin, but they respect him.There was little excitement one day after Jeter provided plenty with his ultimate walkoff a€” a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning in the final home game of his 20 seasons, a 6-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles.Robertson gave up two homers in the top of the ninth Thursday night, allowing Baltimore to tie the score and setting up Jeters dramatic moment.On Friday, Robertson let Xander Bogaerts reach second with no outs in the ninth but retired the next three batters.Deja vu? No, he said. I kept the ball in the field.The Yankees had five rookies in the starting lineup for the first time in more than 30 years and the Red Sox started seven, including pitcher Steven Wright (0-1).New York gave Capuano (3-4) a 3-1 lead by the time he left with two outs in the seventh.Boston threatened to tie it in the seventh when Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo hit reliever Shawn Kelleys first pitch for his second homer in his eighth major league game.Learning how to make adjustments in the game has been very helpful, Castillo said through a translator.Brentz, who made his major league debut Sept. 17, gave Boston a 1-0 lead with a single in the second.For the first time since Oct. 4, 1980, against Detroit, New York started five rookies, not including the pitcher, according to STATS. Five rookies started for the first time since Sept. 26, 2003, in the second game of a doubleheader against Baltimore but one of them was a pitcher.The rebuilding Red Sox have been using youngsters for months. For the third straight game, they started seven rookies, including the pitcher.UNCERTAIN FUTURECapuano, who signed with the Yankees after being released by the Red Sox on July 1, was grateful for his second chance. Its been a really special experience, said Capuano, a 10-year veteran who faces an uncertain future.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: Jeter needed a day to recover from the emotion of his final game at Yankee Stadium, capped by his hit that gave the Yankees a 6-5 win over the Orioles I dont think I really slept a€” maybe a couple of hours, Jeter said. I dont know if I could play tonight if I was playing tonight. Last night was as special as it gets.Red Sox: DH David Ortiz, 1B Mike Napoli and 3B Brock Holt are expected to miss the series. Ortiz sat out his third straight game with a sore left wrist. Napoli missed his eighth consecutive game with finger, toe and back injuries. Holt has been sidelined with a concussion since Sept. 5.UP NEXTMasahiro Tanaka (13-4) starts for the Yankees against Joe Kelly (3-2) in the second game of the series. Tanaka will make his second start since returning from a 2 1-2-month break while resting and rehabbing an elbow injury. Kelly has won three of his last four starts, including one at Yankee Stadium.FOREVER YOUNGThe last five batters in Bostons lineup entered the game with a total of 33 major league games this year a€” Garin Cecchini with 8, Castillo (7), Brentz (6), Ryan Lavarnway (7) and Dan Butler (5) Josh Donaldson Jersey . Vincent Lamar Carter is no longer the lean, athletic dynamo who dazzled Raptors fans with eye-popping dunks that posterized even the leagues best defenders. R.A. Dickey Blue Jays Jersey . Plata blasted a rising shot to the upper left corner for his team-leading seventh goal of the season. He got the kick after referee Allen Chapman ruled Chris Tierney fouled John Stertzer in the penalty area. . Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist stood tall with 41 saves between the pipes, but it was defenceman Ryan McDonagh who got the first star of the game as he had a goal and an assist and now has two goals and four assists for six points in two games.TORONTO -- The Canadian mens rugby team will play the U.S. on June 21 in Sacramento, Calif., as part of the IRB Pacific Nations Cup. Canadas other game in the tournament -- against Japan on June 7 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, B.C. -- had been previously announced. The contest against the U.S. Eagles will be played at the new Cal Expo Multi-Use Sports Field. Canada is currently ranked 15th in the world, while Japan is No. 13 and the Americans are No. 18. The other Pacific Nations Cup pool features No. 8 Samoa, No. 11 Fiji and No. 12 Tonga. Samoa will host Tonga on June 7 before Fiji entertains Tonga on June 14 and Fiji faces visiting Samoa on June 21. The U.S. will host Japan at the Stub Hub Center in Los Angeles on June 14 in the other Pool B game. The Pool A winner will be crowned the Pacific Island conference champion while Pool B will compete for the Asia/Pacific conference title. "The Pacific Nations Cup is an excellent opportunity for all participating teams to play some tough, competitive test matches with just over a year to go until Ruggby World Cup 2015," Mark Egan, the International Rugby Boards head of competitions and performance, said in a statement Wednesday. Russell Martin Jersey. Canada will also host No. 10 Scotland at Torontos BMO Field on June 14. Canadian coach Kieran Crowley plans a trials match in B.C. a week before the first game in June so he can review the Canadian-based and overseas talent at his disposal. Domestic-based players will take part in the Canadian Rugby Championship in the late summer with Crowley selecting the cream of the crop to represent Canada in the Americas Rugby Championship in the fall. The Canadians will also have three test matches in November. Canada has already qualified for the 2015 World Cup, which opens in September 2015 in England. The Canadians will play in Pool D with No. 5 Ireland, No. 7 France, No. 14 Italy and No. 17 Romania. Fiji and Canada both finished with 3-1-0 records at the Pacific Nations Cup in 2013 but the Pacific Islanders placed first by virtue of more bonus points. The 2013 event was a basic round-robin format. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
