NEW YORK, July 27 (UPI) -- Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with a grand slam Friday, keying the New York Yankees' 10-3 trouncing of the Boston Red Sox.

Raul Ibanez and Russell Martin each added a two-run shot for the Yankees, who opened a three-game series with their American League East rivals with a resounding win.

Phil Hughes (10-8) yielded three runs on five hits in a seven-inning effort, breaking a personal three-start winless streak. The right-hander walked one and struck out five for the AL East leaders, who improved to 60-39.

Boston starter Aaron Cook (2-4) was tagged for six runs on seven hits, lasting just four innings.

Carl Crawford, Dustin Pedroia and Jarrod Saltalamacchia each launched a bases-empty homer to account for Boston's scoring.
