Darvish, Rangers beat Angels 11-3 with 9-run 4th

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Nelson Cruz capped a nine-run fourth inning with a three-run homer, Lance Berkman had four RBIs and the Texas Rangers helped Yu Darvish cruise to an 11-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night in the rubber game of the series.

Darvish (4-1) allowed three hits over six scoreless innings, struck out 11 and lowered his ERA to 1.65 after getting staked to an 11-0 lead. It was the right-hander's 11th double-digit strikeout performance in 34 major league starts.

Darvish, who did not allow a runner past first base, is 5-1 with a 3.83 ERA in eight starts against the AL West-rival Angels - whom he has faced more than any other team since coming over from Japan last season.

Michael Roth (1-1) threw 75 pitches over 3 1-3 innings in his first big league start, allowing five runs and six hits.
