NEW YORK (AP) The Texas Rangers started a rusty rookie who hadn't worked in three weeks. They ended the game with a guy on the mound who threw 99 pitches two days ago and then a bullpen Tuesday afternoon.
Chase Headley came through with a storybook swing at the stroke of midnight in his Yankees debut, hitting a game-winning single in the 14th inning off Nick Tepesch to give New York a 2-1 victory Tuesday night.
"That was painful, especially when you play forever," Texas shortstop Elvis Andrus said. "We got that game a couple of times, but they were like us, they didn't give up until the last second."
