Robbie Ross Sets Relief Wins Record

Apr 26, 2012 3:44 PM EST

Rangers situational rookie reliever Robbie Ross is tied for the Major League lead for wins.

His four wins in six appearances is a baseball first.

Ross retired eight straight Yankees on Wednesday, including Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez -- guys who made their Major League debut before Ross was in kindergarten.

"I think after [Jeter] grounded out, I think I had to get off the mound and give a sigh of relief," Ross said.

Opposing batters are hitting just .179 against the 22-year-old left-hander.
