Jimenez walks five, O's lose in the Bronx

NEW YORK (AP) -- Derek Jeter gave Yangervis Solarte some assistance with Yankee Stadium tradition, then the rookie helped make the captain a winner in his final home opener Monday as New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2.
   Jeter doubled high off the left-field wall and scored on Jacoby Ellsbury's single in the fifth inning and Hiroki Kuroda (1-1) pitched 6 1-3 sharp innings in the Yankees' 112th opener in New York.
   In what manager Joe Girardi said would be a season-long lovefest for Jeter, the shortstop was cheered every step of the way by an adoring crowd of 48, 142 -- even when his double-play grounder back to Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez (0-2) scored Solarte in the third inning for the first run.
   Shawn Kelley pitched a perfect ninth for his first career save. After the game, the Yankees said closer David Robertson was going on the disabled list with a strained groin.
