ARLINGTON, (AP) Yu Darvish struck out 14, matching the most in his 50 major league starts, and the Texas Rangers hit three solo homers and beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-1 in a makeup game on Thursday night.

Darvish (10-5) had no walks and scattered five hits while throwing 78 strikes in 111 pitches over seven scoreless innings. It was his major league-leading eighth game this season with at least 10 strikeouts.

A.J. Pierzynski, Mitch Moreland and David Murphy all homered off Zeke Spruill (0-1), who went four innings in his first major league start.

Those homers all came early for the Rangers, who won their fourth straight game. They were coming off a three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels with game-ending homers in each.

Darvish struck out 10 of his first 13 batters.
