NEW YORK (AP) - Prince Fielder launched two long homers, drove in four runs and helped the Texas Rangers hold off the New York Yankees 10-9 Friday night for their third straight win.

Quickly down 7-0 and still trailing 10-5, New York rallied in the eighth inning on pinch-hitter Garrett Jones' three-run homer.

Journeyman Ross Ohlendorf took over to begin the ninth, gave up a one-out home run to Mark Teixeira and walked Chase Headley with two outs. Stephen Drew followed with a comebacker that glanced off Ohlendorf, and second baseman Tommy Field swooped in to get the out at first.

Ohlendorf wound up with his first career save. Shawn Tolleson earned saves the previous two days for Texas and didn't warm up.

Back home after a 2-7 trip, the Yankees watched Fielder's three-run shot sail into the second deck during a seven-run burst in the third inning.
