Griffin strong for 8 innings, Rangers beat Yankees 10-1

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - A.J. Griffin pitched eight strong innings, Mitch Moreland hit a bases-loaded two-run single during a five-run third and the Texas Rangers beat the New York Yankees 10-1 on Tuesday night.

The Rangers ended a four-game skid, during which they totaled five runs. They were no-hit for six innings by Yankees right-hander Nathan Eovaldi on Monday night.

In the third, Texas got all five runs with two outs after Prince Fielder was intentionally walked by Luis Severino (0-3) to load the bases. Ian Desmond walked, then Moreland hit his single. Desmond scored on a wild pitch, and Elvis Andrus had an RBI single.

Griffin (3-0) allowed four singles and a walk and struck out five. Griffin, who didn't pitch in the majors during the past two seasons following Tommy John surgery, has limited opponents to a .189 batting average in four starts.

Desmond and Rougned Odor homered for Texas, and Andrus had three hits.
