Jimmy Rollins sent A.J. Burnett's first pitch of the night deep over the right-field scoreboard, and Jayson Werth, Carlos Ruiz and Raul Ibanez also homered as the Philadelphia Phillies rolled to a 7-3 victory Friday night in the first interleague game at new Yankee Stadium and ended New York's nine-game winning streak. Seven homers were hit at the $1.5 billion ballpark, three by the Yankees. Alex Rodriguez hit his sixth since rejoining the Yankees of May 8 and with 559 pulled within four of Reggie Jackson for 11th on the career list. Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira connected in the eighth. Brett Myers (4-2) allowed three runs and eight hits in eight innings as the World Series champions won for the seventh time in eight games.
