Yankees Beat The Birds
NEW YORK (AP) – Nick Swisher and Curtis Granderson hit two-run
doubles in the second inning to back another stingy start by Phil
Hughes, and the New York Yankees handed the Baltimore Orioles their
seventh straight loss, 9-1 on Wednesday night.
Robinson Cano hit a two-run homer in the seventh and ran his
hitting streak to 16 games for New York, which had 14 hits. Jorge
Posada returned to the lineup after sitting out since May 16 with a
broken bone in his right foot and went 1 for 3 with a walk.
Fielding a nearly complete opening-day lineup for the first time
in several weeks, the Yankees pounced on Brad Beregesen (3-4) for
six runs in 2 1-3 innings and beat Baltimore for the seventh
