Alex Rodriguez hit a milestone home run. Hiroki Kuroda was pinstripe sharp in his Yankee Stadium debut. Even recently retired teammate Jorge Posada joined in the festivities. Ah, there’s no place like home for the New York Yankees.A-Rod hit his 630th home run and tied Ken Griffey Jr. for fifth place on the career list, Kuroda pitched neatly into the ninth inning and New York beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-0 Friday in their 110th home opener. Nick Swisher lined a three-run double off Ervin Santana (0-2) in the first inning soon after Posada threw out the ceremonial first pitch and hugged all his old pals.
