Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano both hit a two- run homer to back six shutout innings from Freddy Garcia and help the Yankees beat the Rangers, 5-2.

Garcia (1-0), who signed a minor league contract in the offseason, made his first start for the Yankees and limited Texas to two hits and a walk.

Teixeira went 2-for-3 and finished with three RBI overall for the Yankees, who dropped the opener of this three-game set on Friday.
