The game was the final home opener at the current Yankee Stadium and the debut of new Yankees Manager Joe Girardi.
Wang (1-0) allowed six hits and two runs for the Yankees, who have won 11 straight home-openers, a big league record. Alex Rodriguez was 2-for-3 with an RBI and scored the game-winning run, while Bobby Abreu was 2-for-4 with a run scored.
Closer Mariano Rivera capped Girardi's first win in the Bronx with a perfect ninth.
