Rangers 7, Yankees 2
Reliever Phil Coke reacts after serving up a three-run homer Thursday. (Kathy Willens/AP)
A.J. Burnett struck out 12, but made one mistake that Ian Kinsler drove deep. Still, with key RBI singles by Mark Teixeira, the Yanks were in striking distance. But with Phil Coke on in relief, the Rangers put two on and delivered the big blow on Chris Davis' three-run dinger in the seventh.
