Yankees rally late, outlast Rangers in duel

After a dazzling pitching duel, the Yankees pushed across two runs in the top of the ninth to knock off the Rangers, 3-1, on Saturday afternoon at Globe Life Park.

The Yankees trailed, 1-0, after seven before rallying and reinforcing their hold on the lead in the American League Wild Card race. The Rangers are five back of the Yankees while both teams awaited results of other games later on Saturday.

“The team’s going to hit,” Yankees pitcher Luis Severino said, of being down, 1-0. “They’ve got to do something. But in my mind, I just was thinking ‘I’ve got to keep this a one-run game.’ And that’s what I did.”
