Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Mark Teixeira had three hits, including a two-run homer, and Curtis Granderson went deep for a second straight night against his former team, as the New York Yankees beat Detroit, 9-5, in the third portion of a four-game series.

Teixeira and Robinson Cano hit consecutive homers off Jeremy Bonderman (6-9) in the opening inning and Granderson added another off the right-hander in the fifth, as the Yankees won their second in a row and remained in a tie with Tampa Bay atop the AL East.

Dustin Moseley (3-2) allowed five hits and four runs over five innings to get the win.
