Ian Kinsler homered twice, the Texas bullpen pitched shutout ball and the Rangers became the first visitors to win a series at Yankee Stadium since mid-June, beating New York 7-2 Thursday.
Chris Davis also had a three-run homer for Texas, which took two
of three from the club with the best record in the majors. Jason
Grilli, C.J. Wilson and Frank Francisco combined for 5 1-3 innings
of two-hit relief.
Neither starter let the other side hit the ball much, either -
for different reasons.
A.J. Burnett (10-8) lost despite striking out a season-high 12
in six innings. Texas' Dustin Nippert was pulled after walking
seven in 3 2-3 innings.
