Yankees break through to get their first home run of the year

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner homered in the fourth inning against the Blue Jays today, giving New York its first home run of the season.

It took the Yankees six games to get their first homer of the season. It was the longest it has taken for the Yankees to get their first home run since 1998, when it took them four games to get their first homer. The Yankees had hit a home run in every opening day game from 1999-2012, but now it has been two consecutive opening days without a home run for New York.

Now that the Yankees have their first home run, the Kansas City Royals are the only remaining MLB team to have not hit a home run.
