Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - The Arizona Diamondbacks flew back to Arlington for an interleague makeup game that was postponed May 29 after rain left Rangers Ballpark in unplayable conditions.
On Thursday, the Diamondbacks, for the second time this season, were buried under a deluge of strikeouts by Texas starter Yu Darvish.
The Japanese right-hander matched a career-high with 14 punchouts in a 7-1 win.
Darvish (10-5), who also fanned 14 Diamondbacks on May 27, scattered five singles and didn't issue a walk over seven scoreless innings. He has allowed just one run in three outings since coming off the disabled list.
After mashing three straight walk-off homers in a sweep of the Angels, the Rangers belted solo home runs in three consecutive innings off Arizona rookie Zeke Spruill (0-1).
Spruill, making his first major league start, was tagged for five runs and seven hits in four frames.
