BALTIMORE (AP) - The New York Yankees finally got their first win, using standout performances by newcomers A.J. Burnett, Nick Swisher and Mark Teixeira to beat the Baltimore Orioles 11-2 Thursday.
After being outscored 17-10 in their first two games against the Orioles, the Yankees certainly looked like a $201 million team in the finale of the opening series.
Burnett (1-0) allowed two runs in 5 1-3 innings in his New York debut, Swisher went 3-for-5 with a homer and a career-high tying five RBIs, and Teixeira had two hits and a home run.
Robinson Cano homered and scored four runs for the Yankees, who avoided their first 0-3 start since 1998.
