Rangers hold off Yankees in ninth

Associated Press

Rookie shortstop Elvis Andrus turned Melky Cabrera's liner into a game-ending double play, and the Texas Rangers held off the New York Yankees, 10-9, on Tuesday night.

Michael Young and Nelson Cruz homered for the Rangers, who scored seven two-out runs off Joba Chamberlain to overcome a four-run deficit.

They took a 10-5 lead into the ninth before New York started storming back against Texas' bullpen.

The Yankees scored four runs and had runners on first and second with one out. Cabrera hit a low liner to shortstop that Andrus caught. Andrus then stepped on second to double up pinch-runner Jerry Hairston Jr.
