Recap: Texas vs. Toronto

Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - No extra-inning heroics were needed for the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

A day after Josh Hamilton clubbed a game-winning two-run homer in the bottom of the 13th inning, Adrian Beltre, Ian Kinsler and Mike Napoli all smacked two-run shots and the Rangers' offense used a seven-run second inning to rout the Toronto Blue Jays, 12-6, and complete a three-game sweep.

Kinsler finished with four RBI while Napoli scored three runs for Texas, which has won four of its last five games.

Yu Darvish (7-2) surrendered three runs on seven hits and three walks in five innings.

"He was a little erratic but he made pitches when he had to and that was the most important thing," Texas manager Ron Washington said of Darvish's outing.

J.P. Arencibia hit two homers while Kyle Drabek (4-5) was charged with nine runs on eight hits and three walks in three innings for the Blue Jays, who have dropped five consecutive contests.

In the seven-run second, the Rangers sent 11 men to the plate and registered five hits and three walks.

Michael Young started it with a single before David Murphy walked. After Nelson Cruz popped out, consecutive free passes to Napoli and Mitch Moreland plated Young.

Back-to-back two-run doubles from Kinsler and Elvis Andrus made it 5-0 and two batters later, Beltre hammered a two-run blast to left-center field, giving the home team a 7-0 lead.

Toronto plated a run on Jose Bautista's RBI groundout in the third frame, but Kinsler launched a towering two-run shot to left in the bottom half to make it 9-1.

Arencibia cracked a leadoff homer in the fourth inning and Edwin Encarnacion's run-scoring single in the fifth cut the deficit to 9-3.

Texas, though, tallied three more runs in the seventh frame on Cruz's RBI double and Napoli's two-run homer over the wall in right increased the margin to 12-3.

Arencibia smacked a solo shot in the eighth inning and Colby Rasmus laced a two-run blast in the ninth to cap the scoring.

Game Notes

Kinsler's four RBI tied a career high...Texas was 4-for-7 with runners in scoring position while Toronto was 1-for-11...Hamilton was 0-for-4...Texas has now won three straight for the third time this season.
