NEW YORK -

Ichiro Suzuki homered off Tanner Scheppers with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the New York Yankees to a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.
    
Suzuki's drive to right-center was the Yankees' fourth home run of the game, three coming off Japanese ace Yu Darvish, and it helped New York improve to 4-3 on a homestand that ends after two more games against the Rangers.
    
Travis Hafner, Brett Gardner and Jayson Nix each homered off Darvish, who hasn't won in seven starts. Leonys Martin  connected twice off Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda.
    
Mariano Rivera (1-1) worked a scoreless ninth for New York, which ended the Rangers' five-game winning streak.
    
Scheppers (5-1) pitched a perfect eighth before being touched up by Suzuki in New York's first walk-off win this year.
