Drew's grand slam rescues Yankees

•NEW YORK 6, BALTIMORE 5: Stephen Drew's pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning for the Yankees gave New York its first winning streak of the season Monday night in Baltimore. It was Drew's second homer in two games and New York's first pinch slam since Jorge Posada did it in 2001 against the Orioles. Drew was batting for Brett Gardner, who hurt his right wrist in the first inning when hit with a pitch. Chris Young and Mark Teixeira also homered for the Yankees. Adam Jones had three hits, including a homer, for Baltimore.

•TAMPA BAY 2, TORONTO 1: Jake Odorizzi pitched eight strong innings for the Rays, who improved to 3-10 all-time in opponents' home openers, sending a sellout crowd of 48,414 home unhappy. Jose Bautista walked to begin the Blue Jays ninth but was thrown out trying to steal second as Edwin Encarnacion struck out swinging on a 3-2 pitch. Josh Donaldson flied out to the warning track in right for the final out.

•LOS ANGELES 6, TEXAS 3: Collin Cowgill and David Freese each hit two-run homers in the fifth inning for the Angels, who rallied from an early deficit to beat the Rangers in Arlington, Texas. Matt Shoemaker, who was down 3-0 after the first, pitched into the seventh without allowing another run and won his ninth consecutive decision.

•OAKLAND 8, HOUSTON 1: Billy Butler hit a three-run homer and Marcus Semien and Brett Lawrie connected in support of winning pitcher Scott Kazmir for the Athletics in Houston. Butler has hit safely in each game this season and has the only eight-game hitting streak in the league.
