Ian Kinsler homered twice, the Texas bullpen pitched shutout ball and the Rangers became the first visitors to win a series at Yankee Stadium since mid-June, beating New York 7-2 Thursday.

Chris Davis also had a three-run homer for Texas, which took two of three from the club with the best record in the majors.

Jason Grilli, C.J. Wilson and Frank Francisco combined for 5 1-3 innings of two-hit relief.

Neither starter let the other side hit the ball much, either -- for different reasons.

A.J. Burnett (10-8) lost despite striking out a season-high 12 in six innings. Texas' Dustin Nippert was pulled after walking seven in 3 2-3 innings.
