NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

It was opening day at Yankee Stadium on Monday. First pitch was at 1:08 p.m. with the New York Yankees taking on the Baltimore Orioles in the Bronx.

It was the last home opener for shortstop Derek Jeter who will be retiring at the end of the season.

Jeter, who played just 17 games last year due to injuries, missed last year's opening day with the Bombers. His first home opener was back in 1996.

Former players Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte were on hand to reunite with Jeter as the "Core Four." Rivera and Pettitte threw ceremonial pitches to Posada and Jeter.

The Yankees defeated the Orioles 4-2.

"I don't want to jinx anything but it felt really good," Jeter said. "It felt like maybe my first home opener. It was a fun time for me."

After the game, Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced that closer David Robertson, who did not pitch Monday, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained groin.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    The on-demand ride-sharing app Lyft says it is starting limited service in New York City after reaching agreement with state and city officials to resolve regulatory issues. New York's attorney general and Department of Financial Services say the company agreed to operate "in full compliance" with existing laws and regulations, and that it will start its city service Friday night with commercial drivers only.
