The New York Yankees defeated the Baltimore Orioles, 12-3, on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium to snap a four-game losing streak. The Yankees dropped the first two games of the series to the Orioles in their three-game set.

The Yankee bats put this game out of reach early on. Curtis Granderson hit a solo homer in the first inning. Andruw Jones plated another run in the inning with a sacrifice fly. Endy Chavez got one run back for the Orioles in the second inning on a ground out to first which scored Wilson Betemit. The Yankees added two runs in the second inning on RBI singles by Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher. Jayson Nix's ground rule double scored a run in the third inning and Jeter scored Nix and Casey McGehee with an two-RBI single in the inning. Robinson Cano's grand slam unloaded the bases and gave the Yankees an 11-1 lead through three innings. The Orioles added one run in both the seventh (J.J. Hardy solo homer) and eighth (Chavez RBI double) innings. McGehee, who was just acquired from the Pirates at the trade deadline, hit a sacrifice fly and scored Cano in the eighth inning. McGehee also had two walks and scored two runs in his Yankees' debut.

Phil Hughes went six innings in the win for the Yankees. He gave up nine hits and two walks but just one earned run. Joba Chamberlain gave up the other two earned runs on four hits and a walk in 1 2/3 innings in his debut after missing all of the season while recuperating from Tommy John surgery and a broken ankle.

Yankees (60-43) Vs. Orioles (55-49): Game Time, TV Schedule, Pitching Probables

The New York Yankees will look to snap a four-game losing streak Wednesday, as they host the Baltimore Orioles in the finale of a three-game set at Yankee Stadium (1:05 p.m. ET on YES Network). Phil Hughes (10-8) will take the mound for the New York, which is looking to avoid a three-game sweep from Baltimore, and oppose lefty Zach Britton (1-0).

The contest will be played less than 24 hours after the MLB's non-waiver trade deadline, which featured the Yankees making no bluckbuster moves -- they failed to deal for starting pitcher Ryan Dempster -- but did acquire third basemen Casey McGehee.

McGehee is expected to add some depth to the hot corner, which will be without starter Alex Rodriguez for 5-7 weeks.

Mark Teixeira Wrist Injury: MRI Scheduled Wednesday

The New York Yankees lost 5-4 to the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night, and they may have also lost a critical piece of their lineup in the process. Mark Teixeira was forced to leave the game in the seventh inning after apparently suffering a left wrist injury. Manager Joe Girardi said following the game that the first baseman would undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

"It's a big concern," Girardi said. "He's a huge part of our lineup."

Teixeira injured his wrist diving for a ball. He got off the ground shaking his left hand, but was able to complete the inning. He did not return after the seventh, however.

Teixeira was struck out in all three of his plate appearances on the night. He is hitting .256/.337/.493 this season with 20 home runs.
