NY Yankee returns from injury with a home run

He sat out the first two months of the season, but New York Yankee Derek Jeter stunned fans over the weekend with an explosive return:

On the first pitch of his first at-bat back from the disabled list, Jeter lifted a home run just into the right-field bleachers to give New York an early one-run lead.

"He's a movie is what he is," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after Sunday's 6-5 victory.

Jeter, who played shortstop for the first time this season, went 2-for-4 with an intentional walk and was on base as the Yankees scored the walk-off run.

"It feels good to contribute," Jeter said. "The first of anything is difficult to get -- first hit, first home run, first RBI, first game is difficult for me to get. It feels great to contribute, but more importantly we won. I wouldn't feel good if we lost this game."
