Derek Jeter had a three-run homer and Raul Ibanez introduced himself to the upper deck at Yankee Stadium as the Bombmers took the rubber game of a three game set against the Angels on Sunday Night Baseball.

Rachel and Sharon Robinson was honored before the game, as it was the 65th anniversary of the day their husband, and father, Jackie, broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier. On Sunday, every player on every team around the league wore No. 42 jerseys to honor Robinson’s historic accomplishment.

Ivan Nova (2-0) contained L.A.’s power offense, allowing 4 runs on eight hits while striking out eight in his six innings of work – extending a remarkable streak that his seen the young Dominican win 14 consecutive decisions.

Jeter, Robinson Cano, Mark Texeira and Ibanez all had two hits for the Yanks, with Jeter and Ibanez driving in three-runs each.

In the seventh-inning, Ibanez launched a two-run blast down the right field line that landed in the stadium’s upper deck – an estimated 450-foot bomb.

New York (5-4) will host the struggling Twins (2-7) in the Bronx Monday at 7:00 with Freddy Garcia slated to face to Carl Pavano.
