Recap: LA Angels vs. Texas

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Mike Napoli homered twice, Adrian Beltre punctuated a five-run second inning with a two-run homer and the Texas Rangers posted a 9-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Yu Darvish (11-6) tossed seven solid innings for the Rangers, who avoided a third straight defeat. Darvish gave up two runs on three hits, walked four and struck out 11.

Winless since mid-June, the woes continued for Los Angeles' Ervin Santana (4-10). He was tagged for six runs on eight hits while recording just five outs. It marked the second time in three outings that he failed to make it out of the second inning.

"They jumped on every pitch I threw early," Santana said. "I'm having better bullpen sessions, but it's not carrying over to the game."

Santana allowed three first-inning singles, with Michael Young's two-out base hit giving the Rangers a 1-0 lead.

Things got worse for the LA right-hander as the visitors erupted for five runs in the next frame. Santana surrendered three home runs, including back-to-back shots by Napoli and Yorvit Torrealba to begin the frame.

Craig Gentry and Ian Kinsler then produced another run with consecutive doubles, and Beltre chased Santana from the game with his two-out blast to center field.

Napoli added another solo homer off David Carpenter in the third.

Mike Trout put the Angels on the board with an RBI single in the home third and scored on a base hit by Torii Hunter two innings later.

Kinsler launched a two-run homer to left field in the eighth to put the Rangers up 9-2.

"We have a lot of guys that can drive the ball. We had a good team win today," Napoli said.
