  • NEW YORK — Chase Headley hit a game-winning single in the 14th inning of his Yankees debut to give New York a 2-1 victory over Texas on Tuesday.
    Derek Jeter broke Lou Gehrig's franchise record for doubles, and the Yankees won an unlikely pitching duel after both rookie starters entered with a 5.10 ERA.
    J.P. Arencibia snapped a scoreless tie with a leadoff homer in the 13th against New York reliever David Huff, but the Yankees responded with Brett Gardner's leadoff double and Jacoby Ellsbury's tying single off closer Joakim Soria in the bottom half.
    Brian Roberts doubled with one out in the 14th off Nick Tepesch (3-6), who threw 99 pitches over 41/3 innings during Sunday's start in Toronto. Headley looped a single to left-center to score Roberts.
    Headley was acquired from San Diego in a trade before the game.
    Jeff Francis (1-1) worked a scoreless inning to win his Yankees debut in a game that took 4 hours, 59 minutes.
