Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Curtis Granderson came off the bench and
drove in five runs, leading the New York Yankees to a 13-3 victory over the
Baltimore Orioles and a split of the four-game series at Camden Yards.
Granderson finished 3-for-3 with a homer, while Derek Jeter also homered and

first win of the season.
Zach Britton (5-2) took the loss, allowing five runs on five hits and five
walks in just 3 1/3 innings.
