Alex Rodriguez hit a grand slam in the third inning to help aide the New York Yankees to a win over the Oakland Athletics 6-1. The grand slam was the 21st in Rodriguez’s career, the most of any active major league baseball player.

Kevin Kouzmanoff got the Athletics off to a quick start with a RBI in the first inning. After that it was all New York. Rodriguez grand slam in the third was the first of two homeruns on the day for the slugger. He also blasted a bomb to center in the 6th inning.

The Yankees got a win from left hander C.C. Sabathia. He is now 11-3 on the season, with a 3.19 earned run average. He went 7.2 innings and allowed 7 hits and just 1 run. Sabathia struck out 10 batters and walked just 3.

Trevor Cahill took the loss for the Athletics. Recently voted into the All Star Game, Cahill went six innings and allowed 4 hits and 6 runs. He is now 8-3 on the season, and has an ERA of 3.17.

The win for the Yankees moved their major league leading record to 52-31, and kept them in first place in the American League East. Oakland dropped to 41-44 with the loss. The Athletics are nine games behind the Texas Rangers in the American League West.

The two teams will go back at it on Wednesday with A.J. Burnett taking on Gio Gonzalez.
