Matsui and Damon go home as winners

NEW YORK -- On Sunday afternoon, Hideki Matsui did something he’d never done before: pitch.

Matsui gave up singles to the only two batters he faced in the fourth inning of Sunday’s Old-Timers' Day game at Yankee Stadium.

Matsui’s Bombers used a four-run first inning to beat the Clippers, 7-3. Matsui also contributed an RBI fielder’s choice in his Old-Timers' Day debut.

Johnny Damon, also making his Old-Timers' Day debut, had a single and a double for the Bombers.

Jesse Barfield homered for the Bombers.
