Jeter, 38, doubled over the head of center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury leading off the first. With two outs, Curtis Granderson doubled to put New York ahead.
Granderson entered the series in a 4-for-36 funk before homering in each of the first two games. He batted cleanup Sunday for the second time in his career and first with the Yankees.
Jeter clocked a ground-rule double to center in the third. He was on the front end of a double steal with Nick Swisher and scored on Beckett's wild pitch.
NOTES: Teixeira missed his third straight game with a sore left wrist, but he said it's improving and he intends to try to play Monday night in Chicago. "We'll have to see when he goes through some drills how he feels," Girardi said. "I think it's a possibility he could have to deal with this the rest of the year and I think it's a possibility it could be gone, too." Swisher started at first base. ...
