Rangers get rare series win, 3-2 over Yankees

Colby Lewis retired the last 13 batters he faced in seven strong innings and the Texas Rangers clinched their first series victory in a month, beating the New York Yankees 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Brett Gardner led off the game with a homer for the second straight night, after homering twice in the series-opening loss for New York.

The Rangers had lost seven consecutive series since taking two of three against Minnesota from June 27-29.

Texas went ahead to stay with three runs in the first off Hiroki Kuroda (7-7). Elvis Andrus had an RBI double and scored the tiebreaking run on a single by Adrian Beltre, who came home on Leonys Martin's single.

Lewis (7-8) allowed four hits, including solo homers to Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury. The right-hander struck out four and walked two, and New York didn't have another runner after Carlos Beltran's two-out single in the third..
