Nick Swisher hit a grand slam to help the New York Yankees erase a nine-run deficit, then he added a two-run double to give them the lead as they posted back-to-back seven-run innings to beat Boston 15-9 on Saturday and send the Red Sox to their fifth straight loss.
A day after Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz gave up five homers and the Yankees spoiled Fenway Park's 100th anniversary party, Boston chased New York starter Freddy Garcia after 1 2-3 innings and opened a 9-0 lead through five. But Mark Teixeira homered twice, the second a three-run shot in the seven-run seventh that cut the deficit to 9-8.
Swisher hit a two-run double off the center field wall in the eighth to make it 10-8. Teixeira, who homered from both sides of the plate for the 13th time in his career, and Swisher each had six RBIs.
