Yankees Vs. Rangers Final Score: Hiroki Kuroda Shuts Out Rangers, Yankees Top Texas, 3-0

Behind a complete-game shutout from pitcher Hiroki Kuroda and back-to-back homers from Mark Teixeira and Nick Swisher, the New York Yankees topped the Texas Rangers, 3-0, Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.

Kuroda no-hit the Rangers through six innings, but infielder Elvis Andrus’ infield single to lead off the seventh broke up Kuroda’s no-hit bid. Kuroda would give up one more hit to Michael Young in the eighth inning.

Rangers starter Matt Harrison was strong in his 6 1/3 innings pitched, and was only credited with one earned run. Reliever Alexi Ogando surrendered the back-to-back blasts to Teixeira and Swisher in the bottom of the seventh inning after Jeter reached to chase Harrison.

Rangers reliever Tanner Scheppers pitched a scoreless eighth inning to hold the Yankees’ lead at three, but the Rangers were unable to score against Kuroda.

The Yankees have now taken the first two games in a four-game set in the Bronx. The series continues Wednesday as the Rangers’ Scott Feldman and the Yankees’ Freddy Garcia square off at 7 p.m.
