The New York Yankees win a rain shortened game over the Texas Rangers

The New York Yankees defeated the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 2-1.  David Phelps started and pitched well.  The rains came in the fifth inning and the grounds crew just couldn't get the tarp on in time.  The field was soaked and deemed too dangerous to play in and the game was called after a long delay.  Francisco Cervelli had two hits and Brett Gardner a hit and an RBI. 

Phelps pitched five innings giving up five hits and a run.  He walked none and struck out three to earn his fifth win of the season. 

Yu Darvish pitched 4 1/3 innings giving up four hits and two runs.  He didn't walk a batter and struck out five and lost his sixth game of the season. 

Gardner had a hit and an RBI, Chase Headley had a hit and Cervelli had two hits.  Headley hit a double and Cervelli hit two doubles.  Gardner hit a homerun and the Yankees were 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left three men on base. 

Alex Rios had a hit, Adrian Beltre had a hit and Leonys Martin had two hits.  Gimenenez had a hit, Martin hit a triple and the Rangers were 0-3 with runners in scoring position and left two men on base.  Rios was caught stealing and Beltre committed an error. 

All the runs of the game were scored in the third inning.  The Rangers took a 1-0 lead on a ground ball double play.  Cervelli scored on a balk to tie the game for the Yankees and then Gardner hit a solo homerun to give them a 2-1 lead and that would be the final score.  The two teams will finish their four game series on Thursday afternoon.
