Cruz, Beltre lead Rangers to 8-5 win over Yankees

By MIKE FITZPATRICK
AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) - Nelson Cruz homered and the Texas Rangers got consecutive two-run doubles from Adrian Beltre and A.J. Pierzynski in an 8-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.

Rangers rookie Justin Grimm pitched just well enough to beat Andy Pettitte, and the AL West leaders won for the seventh time in nine games following a 6-game slide - their longest of the season. Texas improved to 6-12 against the Yankees since the start of 2011, both perennial playoff teams this decade.

Lyle Overbay and Ichiro Suzuki homered for New York on a hectic day at Yankee Stadium, where baseball's most storied franchise announced that first baseman Mark Teixeira needs season-ending surgery on his right wrist.
