Yankees ‘D Falters in Loss
NEW YORK (AP) — Miles Mikolas earned his first win as a starter, pitching into the eighth inning Monday night and leading the Texas Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the sloppy New York Yankees.
Trailing by a run with none on and two outs in the sixth, Texas got run-scoring singles from Geovany Soto, Rougned Odor and Shin-Soo Choo to go ahead in only its third win in 17 July games.
Adrian Beltre drove in the Rangers’ first run with a fielder’s choice in the third inning on one of New York’s five errors — three by starting pitcher Shane Greene (2-1).
Second baseman Brian Roberts and shortstop Derek Jeter made the other errors for the Yankees, who had not committed five in a nine-inning game since Aug. 20, 1998, against Minnesota.
