NEW YORK – Miles Mikolas is a 25-year old kid from Jupiter, Fla. Derek Jeter is a 40-year old shortstop headed to the Hall of Fame. In a game that humbles everyone at some point, it was Mikolas, the Texas Rangers right-hander, handling Jeter, the New York Yankees captain, playing in his final three months of his big league career. The Rangers’ 4-2 victory over the Yankees on Monday night turned in the fifth inning. The Yankees held a 2-1 lead and loaded the bases with one out when Jeter faced Mikolas.

Worst loss of the year? Doubtful. Most embarrassing?

NEW YORK – All Ron Washington is asking from this young Texas Rangers club is to compete. Monday night in the Bronx, Washington’s kids did compete and earned a 4-2 victory over the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. This victory pushed the Rangers (40-59) to just 3-14 in July and prevented the club from going to 21 games under .500. Right-handed starter Miles Mikolas (1-2) earned his first big league victory as a starter and did something so few in this rotation have done, going past the sixth inning.
