NEW YORK, April 1 (UPI) -- Chien-Ming Wang worked seven innings and Melky Cabrera homered Tuesday to carry the New York Yankees to a 3-2 win over Toronto.

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.

Shannon Stewart and Marco Scutaro each drove in a run for the Blue Jays. Toronto's Roy Halladay (0-1) gave up three runs on seven hits in seven innings.
