Chapman gets save, Yankees allow 1 hit to top Rangers 3-1

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Aroldis Chapman earned his first save since being removed as closer to finish a one-hitter in the New York Yankees' 3-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.

Tyler Austin hit a go-ahead single in the ninth inning for the wild card-leading Yankees.

Texas' only hit was a run-scoring double in the fifth inning off Luis Severino, who went seven innings in his first no-decision since July 15 at Boston.

Chapman struck out two in a perfect ninth for his team-leading 17th save and first since Aug. 15. David Robertson (7-2) had a strikeout in a perfect eighth.

Chase Headley drove in two runs without a hit - a tying sacrifice fly in the eighth and a bases-loaded walk for a 3-1 lead in the ninth.
