and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 Tuesday


Tejada, playing his first season at third base, fielded Alex

Rodriguez's sharp grounder off reliever David Hernandez in the

seventh inning, but his throw to first bounced in the dirt and Ty

Wigginton couldn't stretch far enough to scoop it.

Curtis Granderson hit a solo homer in the fifth inning.

Baltimore lost its sixth in a row.

Vazquez (4-5) allowed a solo homer to Corey Patterson in the

sixth, one of four hits he allowed. He struck out seven in seven


Matusz (2-6) gave up six hits and three runs – one earned.
