The New York Yankees lose an ugly game to the Texas Rangers

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Texas Rangers on Monday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 4-2.  Shane Greene started and pitched well but he didn't field very well with three errors.  The offense didn't do much of anything. 

Greene pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up five hits and four runs with a walk and five strikeouts.  He lost his first game of the season.  Matt Thornton gave up two hits without recording an out, Adam Warren pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a hit and striking out two and David Huff pitched two innings giving up two hits and a walk with three strikeouts. 

Miles Mikolas pitched 7 1/3 innings giving up four hits and two runs with two walks and three strikeouts.  he won his first game of the season, Neal Cotts pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a walk and he struck out one and Joakim Soria saved his 17th game of the season pitching an inning and giving up a hit. 

Brett Gardner drew two walks, Derek Jeter drew a walk and Jacoby Ellsbury had two hits and an RBI.  Carlos Beltran had an RBI, Kelly Johnson had a hit and Francisco Cervelli had a hit.  Zelous Wheeler had a hit, Ellsbury hit a homerun and the Yankees were 1-3 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Greene committed three errors, Roberts and Jeter each had one. 

Shin-Soo Choo had two hits and an RBI, Elvis Andrus had a hit and Adrian Beltre had a hit and an RBI.  Jake Smolinski had two hits, Gimenez drew a walk and Jim Adduci drew a walk.  Geovany Soto had two hits and an RBI, Rougned Odor had two hits and an RBI and Choo hit a double.  The Rangers were 4-10 with runners in scoring position and left 12 men on base.  Andrus was caught stealing. 

In the first the Yankees took a 1-0 lead on a Beltran sacrifice fly.  In the third a force attempt error allowed a run to score and tie the game at one.  In the fourth Ellsbury hit a solo homerun to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead.  In the sixth Soto hit an RBI single to tie the game at two.  Odor hit an RBI single and Choo hit an RBI single to give the Rangers a 4-2 lead and that would be the final score.  The two teams will play game two of four on Tuesday night.
