ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Colby Lewis retired the last 13 batters he faced in seven strong innings and the Texas Rangers clinched their first series victory in a month, beating the New York Yankees 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Texas went ahead to stay with three runs in the first off Hiroki Kuroda. Elvis Andrus had an RBI double and scored the tiebreaking run on a single by Adrian Beltre, who came home on Leonys Martin's single.
Lewis allowed four hits, including solo homers to Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury. The right-hander struck out four and walked two, and New York didn't have another runner after Carlos Beltran's two-out single in the third..
Rangers RF Rios leaves after getting hit on quad
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Right fielder Alex Rios has left the Texas Rangers game after getting hit by a pitch on the left quad.
The Rangers called the move precautionary after Rios left Wednesday night's game against the New York Yankees.

Jerry Jones: Brent out of rehab, NFL question next
OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says former defensive tackle Josh Brent is out of rehabilitation and could have his future with the NFL resolved before the team leaves training camp in California in two weeks.
Jones said Wednesday from training camp that Brent was released from rehab on Monday.
The 26-year-old Brent was convicted in January of intoxication manslaughter for the December 2012 crash that killed Jerry Brown, a Cowboys practice squad player. He was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years' probation. He left jail last month and entered a rehab facility in Dallas.
Brent retired last year and will have to apply for reinstatement. He could face a suspension under the league's personal conduct policy.
