TAMPA, Fla. -- Vernon Wells went 0 for 3 with an RBI groundout in his debut with the Yankees, and the Houston Astros and New York played to a 4-all tie Tuesday night in 10 innings.
The Yankees completed a trade with the Los Angeles Angels earlier in the day to get Wells. The 34-year-old outfielder flied out twice and had a hard grounder during a three-run sixth.
Opening day starter CC Sabathia allowed four runs over five innings for the Yankees. He gave up three doubles during the first inning and a fourth-inning solo homer by Brandon Barnes.
New York closer Mariano Rivera struck out one during a 1-2-3 sixth.
Houston starter Brad Peacock, competing with Alex White for a rotation spot, allowed one run and two hits over five innings.
