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.
