NEW YORK — Nick Swisher hit a grand slam off Ryan Dempster and drove in five runs, Derek Lowe closed with four shutout innings in his Yankees debut and New York beat the Texas Rangers 8-2 Monday night.


David Phelps, starting in place of injured ace CC Sabathia, picked off two runners and pitched a career-high five innings for the win.


In the opener of a four-game series between the teams with the AL's best records, the Yankees powered their way to a sixth straight victory over Texas in the Bronx.


Swisher's second slam this season was his 200th career homer. Eric Chavez also homered off Dempster (1-1), the Rangers' recent acquisition.


Blue Jays 3, White Sox 2

TORONTO — David Cooper singled home the winning run in the 11th inning as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox.


Rajai Davis popped out to open the 11th before left-hander Leyson Septimo came on to replace Jesse Crain. After Septimo (0-2) walked Johnson on four pitches, White Sox manager Robin Ventura brought in Nate Jones to face Edwin Encarnacion, whose single moved Johnson to third. Cooper followed with a liner that bounced just in front of a hard-charging Alex Rios in right, scoring Johnson easily.


Steve Delabar (3-1) struck out six batters in two innings to earn the win.


Chicago's Adam Dunn hit two home runs, including a game-tying shot in the ninth inning, boosting his major league-leading total to 33. It was his 32nd career multihomer game and second this season.


Twins 9, Tigers 3

MINNEAPOLIS — Darin Mastroianni and Ryan Doumit each homered and drove in three runs, Samuel Deduno baffled the struggling Detroit Tigers for seven innings and the Minnesota Twins snapped a four-game losing streak with a victory.


Deduno (4-0) held Detroit hitless through four innings and retired nine of 10 batters before getting into trouble in the eighth. The 29-year-old pitcher struck out six and remained undefeated in seven career starts.
