Wood hit hard early
Yankees 8, Rangers 2
Mike Wood threw 99 pitches in Tuesday's loss, just 51 for strikes. (Julie Jacobson/AP)
 Sosa's RBI single
Mike Wood contained the Yankees in Arlington last week, but he had no such luck on Tuesday, allowing eight runs (six earned). Hank Blalock had three of the Rangers' seven doubles, collecting his fourth multi-hit game of the month, but a Jerry Hairston error with two outs in the third inning led to two runs. Eric Gagne went unused in his return from the disabled list.
