Yankees Beat Rangers Behind The Bat Of Granderson

Bronx, NY (Sports Network) – Curtis Granderson continued his power surge with a home run and four RBI, as the New York Yankees, without their injured leadoff hitter, knocked out Alexi Ogando in the second inning en route to a 12-4 pounding of the Texas Rangers.

Derek Jeter, in the midst of his chase for 3,000 career hits, was placed on the 15-day disabled list before the game due to a strained right calf.

New York hardly missed his presence in the opener of the three-game series with Granderson, Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher each homering and Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez driving in two runs apiece in the rout.

CC Sabathia (8-4) was the beneficiary of the run support in a so-so outing that saw the lefty allow four runs on eight hits over seven innings.

Ogando (7-1) was handed his first loss of the season in easily his shortest outing, getting touched for six runs on six hits and recording only five outs.
