It was a good Friday for Yankees baseball, as Austin Romine and the world-class bullpen combined to beat the St Louis Cardinals 4-3 in game one of their weekend series. Game two goes today, with CC Sabathia taking on the Cards' ace, Carlos Martinez. So far this season Martinez has an excellent start against the Chicago Cubs and a terrible start against the Cincinnati Reds.

First pitch is at 1:05, although it may be slightly delayed as today is Jackie Robinson Day in baseball. All players across the game will wear the iconic 42, and I'm sure the Yankees will have a moving ceremony of some kind pregame.

Catch it on, YES, MLBN or WFAN if you're a radio type.
