NEW YORK, April 7 (UPI) -- Bobby Abreu hit a two-run home run and scored three times Monday, sparking the New York Yankees to a 6-1 victory over Tampa Bay.

Abreu also had a triple for the Yankees as he went 3-for-3. Hideki Matsui had two RBI, while Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano each drove in a run.

Mike Mussina (1-1) allowed one run on just two hits in six innings for the win. The victory was the 251st of his career, tying him with Bob Gibson for 42nd in major league history. Mussina also upped his career strikeout total to 2,668, tied with David Cone for 21st all-time.

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter left the game before the third inning with a strained left quad.

Jonny Gomes homered for the Devil Rays. Jason Hammel (0-1) allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings.
