Granderson, Yankees give Suzuki grand welcome

NEW YORK (AP) - Curtis Granderson and Yankees fans gave Ichiro Suzuki a grand welcome to the Bronx.
    
Raul Ibanez and Russell Martin hit two-run homers, Granderson capped the scoring with an eighth-inning grand slam and New York powered past the Boston Red Sox 10-3 on Friday night.
    
In Suzuki's first game wearing Yankees pinstripes, Phil Hughes (10-8) gave up three solo homers but little else in seven innings to help the Yankees beat Boston for the sixth time in seven games this year - New York's best start to a season against the Red Sox since opening 6-0 in 1994.
    
The rivals were meeting in the Bronx for the first time this year, the latest in a non-strike season the team's have met at Yankee Stadium.
