Yankees Power Past Indians
Bronx, NY (Sports Network) – Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson each homered and Mark Teixeira added a three-run double for the Yankees in an 11-7 victory over the Indians that turned a bit contentious in the second inning.
Teixeira got involved in a shouting match with Indians starter Fausto Carmona after he was hit by a pitch in the second, leading to both teams leaving their benches to join the scuffle. While there was no serious threat of an ensuing brawl, the Yankees beat up the Indians on the scoreboard.
Robinson Cano and Jorge Posada each had three hits and an RBI to help the Yankees put their three-game sweep at the hands of the Red Sox behind them.
