Darvish gets boost from bats, Texas tops Chisox

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Yu Darvish overcame a shaky start for his fifth victory in April and the Texas Rangers backed him with plenty of big hits Tuesday night in a 10-6 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Darvish (5-1) struck out nine in six innings, but the game was tied when he threw the last of his 108 pitches.

Texas scored six times in the sixth to break it open. Mitch Moreland, who had three hits, delivered a go-ahead double and Adrian Beltre capped the burst with a two-run homer. The bases were loaded when Beltre got to the plate before two wild pitches by Nate Jones allowed two runs.
