NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees are outpitching some of baseballs best pitchers. Facing the third successive Cy Young recipient in the last three games, the Yankees rode a superior performance from starter Chris Capuano and Adam Warren to a 5-1 victory over Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night, their second win in the series. Capuano allowed five hits and an unearned run with eight strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings, leaving with the game tied at 1. Warren (2-5) worked out of an eighth-inning jam created by a walk and two errors after the Yankees had taken a 2-1 lead on Brian McCanns homer in the seventh. "Ive seen him do this before and that was one of the reasons we went and got him," manager Joe Girardi said of Capuano, who has gone at least six innings in all three of his starts since being acquired from the Rockies on July 24th. "If Im not mistaken, he did it to us last year here. He does know how to pitch, and he gave us a great performance tonight." Chase Headley also homered for the Yankees, whose streak of 16 consecutive games decided by two-or-fewer runs ended when they broke out for three runs in the eighth against reliever Blaine Hardy. Mark Teixeira injured his hand when he was spiked by catcher Bryan Holaday while scoring the Yankees final run on a slide at home plate. Teixeira, called out by home plate umpire Tom Woodring but ruled safe on a review, sustained a deep cut near his left pinky and will not play in Thursdays matinee finale of the four-game set. "It (the cut) was pretty bad," said Teixeira, who was replaced at first base in the ninth by Headley. "I took one look and looked away. Steve (trainer Steve Donohue) rushed me up here, we got it cleaned up and got the stitches in there. "You play hard, thats what happens. Im just happy about the win. It was a great team win." As they did in Tuesdays 4-3 victory, the Tigers scored in the first inning via the sacrifice fly, with Rajai Davis reaching on Derek Jeters error. That was all Detroit could generate against Capuano, Warren and David Huff, who pitched a perfect ninth. "He was changing speeds, heights, location," Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos said about Capuano. "He wasnt really giving anybody the same looks two times in a row. If he thought you were leaning, kind of diving for that changeup, youd get a heater in. Both McCann and Capuano had a great night tonight." Verlander (10-10) retired the first 11 Yankees he faced before surrendering a two-out single to centre by Jacoby Ellsbury in the fourth. Headley deposited a 2-2 fastball into the right-field stands with out in the fifth for his ninth homer and second as a Yankee to tie it at 1, and it remained deadlocked until McCann belted his 13th homer on a 1-2 pitch with one out in the seventh. "Im not going to dwell on two homers," said Verlander, who allowed five hits and one walk with five strikeouts in seven innings. "Headleys was gone anywhere. McCanns probably not in a lot of places, but, overall it was a good game." The Yankees committed four errors -- two by Stephen Drew in just his sixth game at second base -- but both Capuano and Warren picked up their fielders with key outs. Jeter singled in the sixth inning and needs one hit to tie Honus Wagner (3,430) for sixth place on the career all-time list. TRAINERS ROOM Yankees: Michael Pineda, who has missed exactly half the season with a right shoulder muscle injury, will make his second rehab appearance Friday at Scranton. Girardi indicated Pinedas return might be accelerated. "Hes probably available to go somewhere between 75 to 80 (pitches). Then well see where were at," Girardi said. Tigers: Right fielder Torii Hunter was listed as day-to-day after being hit on the left hand by Dellin Betanaces pitch in the ninth inning Tuesday night. X-rays taken after the game were negative. Hunter said he had a ruptured blood vessel and had a difficult time sleeping last night, but was relieved nothing was broken. "Id rather deal day-to-day than have a couple weeks off," he said before Wednesdays game. "It (the pitch) just backed up. I guess it just slipped out of his hand or something like that and stayed in on me. Thats baseball. You cant do anything about that. None of that was intentional." ON DECK The Yankees go with rookie right-hander Shane Greene (2-1, 3.68 ERA) in the finale of the four-game set Thursday. Detroit sends right-hander Rick Porcello (13-5, 3.18 ERA to the mound.

I didnt want to put somebody else in a position to shoot a desperate shot, so I just got to my spot. I was feeling pretty good the whole game, so I just knocked it down.The 22-footer completed a perfect 7-for-7 night shooting for Udrih, who was playing for injured starter Mike Conley.Zach Randolph had 20 points and 15 rebounds, Jeff Green and Courtney Lee matched Udrihs 17 points and Marc Gasol finished with 15 points, eight rebounds, six assists and three blocks for the Grizzlies.Memphis led by as many as 20 in the second half, but saw that dwindle to 95-93 when Portlands Damian Lillard connected on a 3-pointer with 1:06 left. Udrihs 20-footer as the shot clock expired on the next possession helped Memphis maintain the lead.Lillard connected on another 3-pointer with 27 seconds left, but then Udrih made his 22-footer.I was pleased with our effort in the second half, Portland coach Terry Stotts said. Beno made two jumpers that obviously made a difference. We put ourselves in a position to win a game on the road against a good team and just fell a little short in the second half.LaMarcus Aldridge led Portland with 32 points, 18 in the second half, while Wesley Matthews finished with 25 points. Lillard, who struggled through three quarters, scored 23, including 10 in the fourth as Portland made its comeback.The loss gave Portland its first three-game losing streak this season.If I knew the answer, I would fix it, Aldridge said when asked about executiion.dddddddddddd So, I dont know. I think weve got to look in the mirror and see what were doing.Portland only converted a third of its shots through much of the first three quarters. That allowed Memphis to extend its advantage to 20. The Trail Blazers were able to trim the Memphis lead to 78-70 after three.Matthews and Aldridge keyed a 12-2 rally in the middle of the fourth. Aldridge backed down whatever defender the Grizzlies rotated to him.Portland got no closer than three points in the final minute thanks to Udrihs baskets — both coming late in the shot clock.I thought the fourth quarter was as close to playoff intensity as you can get in game 40, Memphis coach Dave Joerger said.TIP-INS:Trail Blazers: Nicolas Batum scored three points, and has reached double figures only once in the last seven games. ...Portland has lost seven of the last eight games against Memphis. ...After Portlands leading three scorers, no other player had more than five points.Grizzlies: Former Grizzly Shane Battier, part of the announcing crew for the afternoon University of Memphis and Central Florida game at FedExForum, attended the game and tried to sneak onto the floor for a shooting contest during a timeout. ...Randolph grabbed his eighth rebound of the game in the second quarter, passing Pau Gasol as the top rebounder in Grizzlies franchise history.CONLEYS WHEELSConley warmed up before the game, but said he thought he needed rest on his sore right ankle, missing his second straight game.
