Robinson Tejeda allowed four runs to the Yankees in the bottom of the first and lasted only 3 2/3 innings, his shortest start since last August. Michael Young left the game early with right hamstring tightness and is day-to-day. Brad Wilkerson hit a solo homer, his fourth of the year, in Texas' two-run third inning, and reliever C.J. Wilson pitched 3 1/3 shutout innings.
Mike Mussina lasted six innings in his second start off the disabled list, allowing two runs, to help the Yankees reach the .500 mark with their eighth consecutive win over the Rangers. Derek Jeter collected two of his three RBIs with a two-out single in the bottom of the fourth.
