Hiroki Kuroda blanked the Los Angeles Angels and Nick Swisher’s bases-loaded, 3-RBI double in the first inning proved to be all the offense the Yankees needed in a 5-0 home-opening win at Yankee Stadium on Friday afternoon.

Kuroda (1-1) was brilliant – eight innings, five hits, two walks and six strikeouts – picking up his first win as a Yankee.

Alex Rodriguez had three hits including a solo-homer in the third-inning, his first of the year but 630th of his career , tying him for 5th on the all-time list with Ken Griffey Jr.

Curtis Granderson added a solo-shot as well, his second of the season.

The Yankees (4-3) take a four-game winning streak into Saturday afternoon’s game with the Angeles, with Phil Hughes matching up against C.J. Wilson.

Jorge Posada threw the ceremonial first-pitch before Friday’s game, with his dad behind the plate. Posada retired last year after spending all of his 17 years in the majors in pinstripes.
