Two-out special for Yanks
Offense can't get going
A day after the Rangers pounded out 13 runs on 17 hits, the potent lineup was stalled by Chien-Ming Wang, who allowed just three runs on six hits. One of those hits came off the bat of Gary Matthews Jr., who pulled the Rangers within one run with a line-drive two-run shot to right-center. Kameron Loe was saddled with the loss, allowing four runs in five innings.

Series at a glance:
Wang goes eight strong
The Yanks knocked in each of their four runs on Wednesday night with two outs, and Chien-Ming Wang provided a much-needed rest for the Yankees' bullpen with eight solid innings as the Yankees won their second straight. Coming off his walk-off performance on Tuesday, Jorge Posada collected two hits and two RBIs.
