NEW YORK -- A few innings after a matchup between Japanese aces Yu Darvish and Hiroki Kuroda was spoiled by five home runs, Ichiro Suzuki finished off the Texas Rangers with a long ball of his own. 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. "Love it," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Sometimes its tough to score runs when youre not hitting home runs. We got enough tonight." Suzukis drive to right-centre was the Yankees fourth home run of the game, three coming off Darvish, and it helped New York improve to 4-3 on a homestand that ends after two more games against the Rangers. "I think it was just the wrong pitch at the wrong time," Scheppers said. "I probably showed him too many fastballs in that at-bat. Probably should have went with something different." The Bronx Bombers were coming off a stretch in which they hit just four homers in 15 games, going 6-9. Other than Travis Hafner on Tuesday, the contributions came from some unlikely sources. Brett Gardner and Jayson Nix also homered off Darvish, who hasnt won in seven starts. Suzukis drive was his fourth of the year. "Anyone can contribute, thats the great thing about this game," Girardi said. "When you have a bat in your hand, you can be part of the story." Texas also had an unlikely power source: No. 9 hitter Leonys Martin connected twice off 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 Yorks first walk-off win this year. The anticipated matchup between Darvish and Kuroda, Japanese aces with ERAs under 3.00, fizzled on a hot and sticky night when a four-inning stretch produced five home runs. The 11th major league matchup between starters from Japan got off to a sharp start. Even when the Yankees loaded the bases in the first on three straight singles that just cleared the gloves of leaping infielders, Darvish easily got out of the jam with a strikeout and an easy grounder. But Martin started the home run barrage with a shot that landed a couple of rows back in the short right field porch. "The home runs I gave up, that was bad, but otherwise I think I pitched well," Kuroda said through a translator. After the Rangers went up 2-0 on an unearned run in the fourth aided by rookie third baseman David Adams throwing error, Hafner led off the bottom half with a long ball into the New York bullpen. Martin then started the fifth with a shot that landed several sections to the left of his first homer for his fifth of the year. Not to be outdone, Gardner led off the Yankees half with a line drive deep into the seats in right field to pull New York to 3-2. Kuroda had his first perfect inning since the second in the sixth. And Nix promptly tied it with a soaring fly to left field that cleared the wall by several rows, snapping his homerless string at 202 at-bats. Nix last homered on April 7. Darvish was done two batters later, having allowed the most homers of his big league career in 45 starts. He hasnt won since beating Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers on May 16. Pitching on extra rest because Texas chose to bring up top pitching prospect Martin Perez to start against St. Louis on Saturday and push everyone back a day, Darvish struck out six. He yielded seven hits and three runs. "He wasnt at his best. I think we had him twice with two-run leads," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "He tried to get a cutter in on Gardner and didnt get it there and then he hung two breaking balls. They worked him and made him throw some pitches." Kuroda lasted into the seventh, lifted before facing Martin again. Boone Logan came in and struck out the No. 9 hitter. Kuroda matched his line from the last time he faced Darvish on April 24, 2012 -- two earned runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings. He also struck out six. Texas took advantage of Adams throwing error on Adrian Beltres grounder to go up 2-0 in the fourth. Beltre reached when Adams long throw skidded past first baseman Lyle Overbay with one out. A.J. Pierzynski and Lance Berkman each singled to load the bases before Mitch Morelands grounder to second base was too slow for Robinson Cano to start a double play, allowing a run to score. With runners on first and third, David Murphy then hit a grounder that shortstop Nix fielded deep behind second base. He made a strong throw for the third out. NOTES: Chris Stewart threw two runners out trying to steal and Pierzynski one. ... Beltre made two errors. ... Girardi said 1B Mark Teixeira (right wrist inflammation) was going to see a doctor Tuesday but had no update after the game. Teixeira hasnt played since pulling himself from a game June 15 and Girardi said he is concerned about Teixeira because he is showing no improvement. ...

CHICAGO -- Dwyane Wade made his Chicago homecoming a memorable affair, contributing 22 points, six rebounds and five assists to the Bulls 105-99 win over the Boston Celtics on Thursday night.In his first regular-season appearance as a member of the Bulls, Wade had fans cheering from start to finish as he authored the beginning of a new chapter in his Hall of Fame career.After being announced as from Chicago in the starting lineup introductions, Wade, who is from Robbins, Illinois, took a knee for a moment before making his way through a line of high-fives with some of his teammates.Ive been waiting on that moment for a long time, Wade said. I know it was special, obviously, for my family who was here. Theyve been waiting on it probably just as long. I just took that moment just to thank God for giving me this opportunity to be here, to do these things, to have this career I have. And to be able to make a decision on my own. And put myself in a position where I can live a dream out. I was very thankful in that moment. Took that knee to just thank the Lord and hear the cheers in the crowd and take in a moment. And then, its game time.Wade signed with the Bulls over the summer after 13 seasons with the Miami Heat. He has been heralded throughout training camp as a solid leader and a player his younger teammates can learn from, alongside veteran point guard Rajon Rondo.Making his presence known throughout the game, Wade went 7-for-18 from the field and hit the biggest shot of the night, a 3-pointer with 26.3 seconds left that gave the Bulls a five-point lead they would not relinquish.Wade said he had an out-of-body experience after knocking down the 3, which included a throat slash toward the Celtics.Were not the team that everyone is analytically putting together, Wade said of the new-look Bulls. But were a team of guys who can compete. Were a team of guys who have pride. Were a team of guys with talent. Once you make it all work together, it doesnt matter about analytics or the game. Its about players. And its about going out there and competing. And we were able to do that tonight. So were able to do that on a consistent basis. Who knows if the 3s going to go in, but we know if we compete and give that effort, well have a chance to win every night, and thats all you can ask for in this league.Wades performance underscored why the Bulls front office was so happy to land him over the summer. Not only did he help lead Chicago to victory, but he also gave the team a jolt of energy throughout the night and made plays when the game was on the line.He means a lot to this team, Bulls power forward Taj Gibson said.ddddddddddddWe need him to be the Wade hes always been. The guy whos not afraid to attack. The guys whos not afraid to take big shots like you see late in the game. ... When D-Wade took that shot, he made it, his expressions, how he was jumping around, his swag -- it was kind of awkward, because Im used to him kind of doing that against us on the opposing side. But it was a great thing. I was happy we got a win.Butler, who the Bulls hope can mature under Wades tutelage, sang his new teammates praises as well.Thats one less player I got to guard in this league, to tell you the truth, so Im excited about that, Butler said of Wade. But the way the game slows down for him, he knows where guys are going to be. Its hard to do, but thats what happens whenever you play 13, going on 14, years in this league. Hes so much smarter than a lot of guys, using his body and his athleticism to his advantage, so Im taking note.Former Heat teammate Chris Bosh took time to acknowledge how special Thursdays home debut was for Wade.Even Gabrielle Union, Wades wife, couldnt believe what she was seeing in her husbands debut.After watching Wade repeatedly knock down 3-pointers, Union took to Twitter to discuss her delight.Wade shot just 7-for-44 from beyond the arc last season with the Heat, but he went 4-for-6 from 3-point range Thursday.Told about his wifes tweet after the game, Wade started to chuckle.You got to keep the marriage spicy, Wade said. You cant let it get too comfortable with something. So, trying to switch my game up after two years of marriage.Wade might have been happiest of all after Thursdays win. It meant something special to him to be able to perform at such a high level in front of his friends and family.Were all from Chicago, man, Wade said, referring to his mother and father, who were in attendance at the United Center. I know this moment meant a lot [to them]as well. Theyre very proud of what Ive been able to accomplish in basketball, period. Even being in the NBA. Theyre very proud of me.But I know deep inside this means a lot to them. Because this is where we grew up, watching a little 12-inch TV together, trying to watch the Bulls game on WGN. So I know this moment was incredible for them as well, and I enjoyed it. Because I know my loved ones, my family, we grew up idolizing and worshiping this organization and Michael Jordan and Scottie [Pippen] and the Bulls.
