Rangers Vs. Yankees: Thursday Start Time, TV Schedule And More

The Texas Rangers (67-49) will try to avoid a four-game sweep in New York (70-47) on Thursday afternoon when they conclude their series with the Yankees. On Wednesday night, they fell 3-2 after a 45-minute rain delay.

Texas will send Derek Holland (7-6) to the mound. In his last start against the Detroit Tigers on August 11, he pitched a great game but earned a no-decision. He gave up just three hits and one run in 7.2 innings and the Rangers won the game 2-1.

Ivan Nova (11-6) will pitch for the Yankees. He will try to continue his team's recent success in shutting down Texas -- the Rangers have scored just four runs in the three games this week.

First pitch is scheduled for 12:05 p.m. CT at Yankee Stadium. The game can be seen on Fox Sports Southwest.

Rangers Vs. Yankees Score: Texas Falls 3-2 Despite Two Hamilton Home Runs

Despite Josh Hamilton's pair of solo home runs, the Texas Rangers (67-49) fell to the New York Yankees 3-2 late Wednesday night. After a one hour and forty-five minute rain delay before the game, the Texas slugger was the only Ranger who seemed to keep his bat awake for the late night. Four Yankees pitchers combined to hold Texas to just four hits.

Freddy Garcia (7-5) picked up the win for New York (70-47), who used a three-run third inning to secure the win. Scott Feldman (6-8) gave up consecutive hits to Jayson Nix, Derek Jeter, and Nick Swisher to start the inning with Curtis Granderson and Eric Chavez picking up RBI in the frame. Chavez was 3-3 from the plate in the win.

Hamilton's display of power moved his home run total to 34 while he also eclipsed the century mark with 101 RBI. The Rangers, who still hold a six-game lead over Oakland in the AL West, will finish the four-game series with New York tomorrow. Derek Holland (7-6) takes the bump for Texas, facing off against Ivan Nova (11-6).

Rangers Vs. Yankees Score: Josh Hamilton Homers, Texas Down 3-1

After a one hour, forty-five minute rain delay before the game, the Rangers and Yankees have reached the end of four innings in the Bronx. In the top of the frame, Josh Hamilton hit a 2-2 pitch from Freddy Garcia into the second deck in right field to get Texas on the board after a slow start.

Pitcher Scott Feldman got into trouble in the bottom of the third when he allowed leadoff hits to Jayson Nix and Derek Jeter. Nick Swisher followed that up with a double, scoring Nix, then Curtis Granderson moved Jeter home with a sacrifice fly. Eric Chavez finished the rough inning by hitting Swisher home, and by the time the inning was over, Feldman's pitch count had reached 72.

So far, Garcia has held the Rangers to just three hits on the night while it appears Feldman's night might be over after swelling his pitch count and walking two in the fourth inning.

Rangers, Yankees Mired In Rain Delay

The start of Wednesday night's game between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees is being delayed because of inclement weather -- specifically, a lot of rain.

Per ESPN Dallas, the tarp has been on the field at Yankee Stadium since 6 p.m. ET (5 p.m. CT), with the rain coming down steadily for the past hour. The forecast calls for a 55 percent chance of rain until 8 p.m. CT, when the chance of rain diminishes to 10 percent.

The folks at ESPN were optimistic that the game would start around 7 p.m. CT, but that does not appear likely.

Both Scott Feldman and Freddy Garcia are still expected to start once the game does get underway in the Bronx. The Rangers are looking to bounce back from consecutive losses in New York.

Rangers Vs. Yankees: Wednesday Start Time, TV Schedule And More

The Texas Rangers look to rebound from two consecutive losses at the hands of the New York Yankees on Wednesday night, as Scott Feldman looks to right the ship for the Rangers.

Feldman, who has made the transition back to the rotation thanks to a rash of injuries to Texas' rotation, brings a 4.64 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into the contest. Feldman had his streak of three consecutive quality starts (and wins) broken in his last start, when he lost to the Tigers, allowing four runs on six hits in five and two thirds innings.

Joe Girardi will send Freddy Garcia to the mound, to take on Texas' struggling offense. Garcia carries a 6-5 record, 4.85 ERA and 1.37 WHIP into Wednesday's contest. Garcia has pitched well as of late, allowing three or fewer earned runs in each of his last four starts, dating back to July 24.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. CT. Televised coverage can be found nationally on ESPN and online at ESPN3.com, while local fans can catch the game on FOX Sports Southwest.

Rangers Vs. Yankees Final Score: Kuroda, Swisher Power New York Past Texas In Game 2

The Texas Rangers broke up a no-hit bid by New York Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda in the top of the seventh inning, but that would be the only highlight of the night for the Rangers, as they dropped their second consecutive game in Yankee Stadium, 3-0 on Tuesday night.

Texas shortstop Elvis Andrus broke up Kuroda's no-hitter in the top of the seventh of what was a scoreless game at the time, as Matt Harrison (13-7) kept the Yankees scoreless on four hits through six innings. That changed in the bottom of the seventh, as Harrison would go on to earn the tough-luck loss.

After Derek Jeter singled to knock out Harrison with one out in the bottom of the seventh, Nick Swisher greeted reliever Alexi Ogando with a two-run homer. For the second night in a row, Swisher used the long ball to knock in the winning run for the Yankees.

Ogando also gave up a solo shot to the next batter, Mark Teixeira which would be more than enough for the Yankees, as Kuroda (11-8) went on to pitch a complete-game shutout, giving up just two hits and striking out five Rangers.

The Yankees have won six of seven games and after taking two in a row from the Rangers, maintain the top record in the American League.

The two teams resume their four-game series on Wednesday evening at 6:05 p.m. CT.

Hiroki Kuroda No-Hit Bid Broken Up In Seventh Inning

During Tuesday night's game between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees, Hiroki Kuroda took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before it was promptly broken up by Elvis Andrus. Midway through seven innings, the game is still scoreless.

Through the first six innings at Yankee Stadium, the New York starter allowed just two Texas baserunners on walks as he and Matt Harrison engaged in a true pitcher's duel.

The Rangers has been entirely ineffective at the plate until Elvis Andrus hit an infield single to lead off the seventh inning. Josh Hamilton flew out to deep right-center to advance Andrus to second base, but Adrian Beltre struck out. Although Andrus was able to advance to third on a wild pitch, Nelson Cruz was unable to bring him home and grounded out to end the inning.

Through six innings, Harrison has allowed just four hits and three walks, while striking out two.

New York Yankees Vs. Texas Rangers: Tuesday Night Starting Lineups

The Texas Rangers look to rebound from Monday night's loss against the New York Yankees, and to do so, Texas' bats will almost certainly need to muster up more than the two runs they scored on Monday.

Both Joe Girardi and Ron Washington have announced Tuesday night's starting lineups, and they are as follows:

Texas Rangers

2B Ian Kinsler
SS Elvis Andrus
CF Josh Hamilton
3B Adrian Beltre
RF Nelson Cruz
1B Michael Young
LF David Murphy
C Luis Martinez
DH Mitch Moreland

SP Matt Harrison

New York Yankees

DH Derek Jeter
RF Nick Swisher
1B Mark Teixeira
2B Robinson Cano
LF Andruw Jones
CF Curtis Granderson
3B Casey McGehee
C Russell Martin
SS Jayson Nix

SP Hiroki Kuroda

It's starting to get a little bit tiring that Washington insists on not only batting Michael Young sixth, but playing him in the field, while Mitch Moreland serves as the designated hitter, batting ninth.

Rangers Vs. Yankees: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

With the Texas Rangers' 8-2 loss to the New York Yankees on Monday night, they fell a half-game behind their rivals at the top of the American League standings. New York is 68-47, Texas is 67-47. On Tuesday, in the second game of the series, the Rangers will be looking to leap back into the lead.

Rangers Vs. Yankees Final Score: Texas Loses Game 1 In New York

The Texas Rangers didn't start off their road series against the rival New York Yankees the way they wanted to on Monday night. In Ryan Dempster's third start with the team, they lost 8-2 at Yankee Stadium..

Dempster didn't get much support, with both of Texas' runs coming early in the game: Nelson Cruz hit an RBI-single in the first and David Murphy hit a solo shot in the second. That was it.

The Rangers' lead was erased in the third inning after Nick Swisher hit a grand slam. Curtis Granderson added a sac fly before the inning was over, then the Yankees extended their lead late. Eric Chavez had a solo shot in the sixth and, in the seventh, Derek Jeter hit an RBI-double and Swisher scored Jeter on a single.

Dempster gave up nine hits and eight runs in six innings of work. He is now 1-1 as a Ranger.

David Phelps (3-3) got the win for New York. He gave up six hits and two runs in five innings. Derek Lowe relieved him and picked up his first save as a Yankee.

Game 2 is Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. ET in New York.
