Archer outpitches Tanaka, Rays top Yankees 7-3 in MLB opener
Now, he looks to set the tone for a bounce-back year when the Rays begin anew Sunday against the New York Yankees in the first game of the major league season.
Sanchez in particular generated excitement past year, hitting 20 home runs in just 201 at-bats in a phenomenal debut at the end of the season.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, of Japan, delivers to the Tampa Bay Rays during the first inning of a baseball game Sunday, April 2, 2017, in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Leadoff man Corey Dickerson singled in the Tampa Bay first for the first hit of the season and later scored on Longoria's sacrifice fly as part of a three-run inning.
But now Tanaka has a 23.63 ERA one start into 2017. a start that has the Yankees 0-1 yet again, a start that killed momentum from a spring in which the Yankees finished with the best record in baseball. The inning ended with Sanchez grounding out to short.
Chris Archer, who somehow managed to lose 19 games last season and was the subject of ongoing trade rumors during the winter, made the start for the Rays.

On Opening Day 2015 at Yankee Stadium, he gave up five runs, four earned, over four innings in a 6-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. "That's the beauty of this game", Archer said.
Starlin Castro got off to a good start with three consecutive base hits.
