Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - Adrian Beltre capped Texas' six-run sixth inning with a two-run homer as the Rangers upended the Chicago White Sox, 10-6, in the opener of a three-game series.
Mitch Moreland went 3-for-3 with an RBI, Ian Kinsler had two hits, scored twice and knocked in a pair and Nelson Cruz and Jeff Baker belted back-to-back homers in the fourth inning for the victors.
The offensive explosion allowed Yu Darvish (5-1) to come away with a win despite allowing four runs on seven hits over six innings.
Dewayne Wise, after starting the season in a 2-for-22 slump, went 4-for-4 with a two-run homer while Adam Dunn added a solo shot in the White Sox's third straight loss.
Darvish's counterpart, Jose Quintana, only lasted five innings after surrendering four runs on eight hits, and the Rangers immediately broke open a 4-4 game against Chicago's bullpen in the sixth.
