Swish, Tex and Grandy go bananas in win

Nick Swisher, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson combined to go 8-for-15 with three homers, 11 RBIs and six runs scored in a 12-7 win over the Orioles.

Best of all: Teixeira. He got on base five times with a two-run shot. He needed that. Granderson hit a grand slam. Swisher hit a two-run homer and a bases-clearing double. Phil Hughes earned his eighth win, but in one of his worst outings of the year (still, a quality start).

Worst of all: Chad Gaudin. He allowed four runs on five hits in the final two innings. That’s not ideal for the last guy in the bullpen.

Coming up: Game 2 of the series is Wednesday night.

Special shout-out to Stephen Strasburg. Fourteen strikeouts in his debut! That’s sending a message to Ubaldo Jimenez saying: You’ve got company!
