Yanks take advantage of O’s error for win

Orioles third baseman Miguel Tejada underthrew first baseman Ty Wigginton in the seventh inning on Alex Rodriguez’s grounder, allowing two Yankees to score to break a 1-1 tie.

Javier Vazquez  pitched seven innings to earn the win, Joba Chamberlain got the hold and Mariano Rivera closed the door for a 3-1 victory.

Best of all: Curtis Granderson hit a solo homer in the fifth off left-hander Brian Matusz.

Robinson Cano extended his hitting streak to 15 and now has seven straight multi-hit games.

Worst of all: Mark Teixeira fouled a pitch off his left foot in the first inning and left the game in the fourth. He’s considered day-to-day.

Coming up: Game 2 of the series is Wednesday. Same time, same place.
