Yankees 7, Indians 4

NEW YORK — Mark Teixeira hit a grand slam for his first homer of the season, Brett Gardner had a tiebreaking double in the sixth inning and the Yankees beat the Indians 7-4 Monday night to spoil Nick Swisher's first game back in the Bronx.

Andy Pettitte lasted only 42/3 innings in a wild return from the disabled list for his 500th career start. Shawn Kelly and three other relievers held Cleveland scoreless the rest of the way to help New York win for the second time in nine games.

Yankees DH Travis Hafner, wearing Swisher's old No. 33, homered against his former team in the seventh off Justin Masterson, who matched a season worst by allowing seven runs.

The Indians put a runner in scoring position in the first when Mike Aviles singled and went to second on Pettitte's wild pitch. With two outs, Swisher came up to a sustained ovation. He stepped out for a moment then settled in and struck out looking.
