A-Rod's grand slam heads 11-2 pounding of Indians

Alex Rodrguez broke open a pitchers' duel in the seventh inning with a grand slam following an intentional walk of Mark Teixeira. He is now 5-for-5 with 18 RBIs when opposing teams walk Teixeira to load the bases and it was his 20th career grand slam to give him sole possession of third place on the all-time list.

Andy Pettitte pitched seven innings of one-run ball en route to his seventh win of the year, an 11-2 thumping of the Indians.

Best of all: A-Rod's six RBIs. He now leads the team with 41 with Robinson Cano, who hit a solo shot after A-Rod's granny, trailing by one.

Every Yankee starer had at least one hit and combined for 18 as a team.

Worst of all: Chan Ho Park walked a hitter with two out in the ninth. The walk snapped a streak of 65 batters faced without a walk.

Coming up: The Yankees start a three-game series with the Orioles on Tuesday night. I'll have a series preview posted, as usual. Although, I haven't quite figured out the Internet in my new apartment. I should be able to figure it out.
