ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — DJ LeMahieu had a season-high three RBIs for the New York Yankees as they beat the Texas Rangers 7-4. LeMehieu’s tiebreaking, two-run double capped a five-run fourth for the Yankees, and was his first multi-RBI hit this season. He added a sacrifice fly in the sixth. Rouged Odor had two hits against his former team in his return to the Yankees lineup after missing 12 games because of a sprained left knee. Wandy Peralta pitched a scoreless inning for the win and Aroldis Chapman worked the ninth for his 10th save. Rangers starter Mike Foltynewicz gave up five runs in 3 2/3 innings.
