NEW YORK (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo hit a go-ahead single and a three-run homer in a 10-run third inning that chased CC Sabathia from his shortest start in six years, and the Texas Rangers routed the reeling Yankees 15-4 Saturday to send New York to its ninth loss in 10 games.

Shoo and Prince Fielder each had two hits in the third. Fielder finished with three RBIs and hit his third homer in a two games.

The Rangers, who rode a seven-run third Friday to a 10-9 win, won their fourth straight and sent the Yankees to their fifth loss in a row.

Garrett Jones, a right fielder and first baseman, relieved for the Yankees. In the first pitching appearance of his eight-season big league career, he worked around a walk and a hit batter to get the final two outs of the ninth.

Nick Martinez (4-0), who pitched just 3 miles from Yankee Stadium for Fordham, got the win. Sabathia (2-6) allowed six runs and seven hits in 2 1-3 innings.
