Rangers drop two
Yankees 5, Rangers 2
Robinson Tejeda turned in yet another strong start for the Rangers. (Tony Gutierrez/AP)
The Rangers received their second solid starting pitching performance in the nightcap, this one from Robinson Tejeda, but they couldn't counter Mike Mussina or the Yankees bullpen and dropped the nightcap of the doubleheader. Sammy Sosa was expected to be fine after being hit by a pitch in the sixth inning; outfielder Matt Kata had two assists in the first inning.
