The Yankees never looked back after the first four batters of the game collected a hit, taking pressure off rotation fill-in Phil Hughes, who silenced the Rangers with eight shutout innings for his third win. Alex Rodriguez had his first five-hit game since 2005, and Mark Teixeira raised his average to .273 with two hits.
