The Yankees, after a walk-off win on Friday, fell to the Rangers, 8-1, on Saturday afternoon. Luis Cessa allowed three runs over five innings of work, and Tyler Clippard continued his struggles in the ninth inning.
Clippard allowed four runs on three hits and two walks that allowed Texas to extend their lead.
The Rangers were led by Carlos Gomez and Robinson Chirinos, who both went 2-for-3 and hit a home run in the game. Austin Bibens-Dirkx pitched seven innings, allowing one run on five hits and striking out three. The Yankees left nine men on base as their only run came on a home run by Aaron Judge, his Major League-leading 25th of the season.
The series concludes Sunday at 2 p.m., following Old Timers' Day festivities.
