The Yankees came out swinging tonight as they slammed the Red Sox 10-3 in front of a crowd of 49,571. Curtis Granderson hit his second grand slam of the season in the eighth inning to blow the game wide open. 

Phil Hughes started for the Yankees and he was solid after some early struggles. Hughes allowed 3 runs on 5 hits in 7 innings of work. He struck out 5 and walked 1. All of the runs that he gave up were solo home runs. Hughes exited the game after throwing 110 pitches, in which 77 of them were for strikes.

Hughes gave up a solo shot to Dustin Pedroia in the first inning, a solo shot to Carl Crawford in the third inning, and a solo shot to Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the fourth inning.

Raul Ibanez gave the Yankees the lead early with his two-run shot to right field in the first inning. Previously, Mark Teixeia beat out a routine double play ball which scored Derek Jeter and tied the game at one. The Yankees finished the first inning with a 3-1 lead.

Curtis Granderson smacked his second grand slam of the season which blew the game wide open. After the home run, the Yankees led the Red Sox 10-3 and that would be enough to win the game.

The Yankees and Red Sox will play game two of three tomorrow afternoon.
