NEW YORK -- After dropping the first three games of their series against fellow top American League contender New York Yankees, the Texas Rangers survived a wild, back-and-forth game to salvage the finale Thursday. Texas eventually prevailed with a 10-6 win at Yankee Stadium, after blowing an early 4-0 lead. The Rangers pounded out 16 hits, with eight players providing at least one and the first six players in the lineup having at least two. David Murphy had three hits and two RBIs, while Adrian Beltre knocked in three runs and had a pair of hits. Tanner Scheppers got his first major-league win in his first decision despite giving up a run on two hits while recording just one out. Boone Logan (4-1) gave up two runs on a pair of hits as the Rangers scored three times in the seventh off Logan and Joba Chamberlain to regain the lead, 7-5. Andruw Jones homered for New York, whose lead over the Rangers for the AL's best record dropped back to 1 1/2 games. Ichiro Suzuki, sta...

Yankeetorial: Where have you gone, Corey Wade, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you.

Think: Batavia. Any of you ever been to...

Michael Kay won't have any of you blaming him for jinxing Hiroki Kuroda's no-hitter

Nick Swisher Turns 'Rainmaker' on Full Blast, Powering Yankees to Homer-Happy Win (Video)
