ARLINGTON, Texas — Domingo German couldn’t match Corey Kluber’s history-making performance, but the right-hander gave the Yankees just what they needed again, as they won their third straight game on Thursday.

German tossed seven scoreless innings and Gio Urshela and Aaron Judge had RBI pinch-hit singles in the seventh to lead the Yankees to a 2-0 victory over the Rangers at Globe Life Field.

Chad Green pitched the eighth and Aroldis Chapman earned the save in the ninth.

Chapman, nearly unhittable so far this year, walked Joey Gallo with one out and gave up a hard line drive to center Adolis Garcia for the second out before pinch-hitter Khris Davis struck out to end it.

The Yankees completed a 7-3 road trip and head back to The Bronx, where they will open up a series against Tony La Russa and the White Sox on Friday.

The Yankees also improved to 20-9 since losing five straight in mid-April and for a second straight day, scratched out enough runs to beat the last-place Rangers.
