SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Yu Darvish struck out two while retiring all six White Sox batters he faced Tuesday in his first spring start before Chicago scored 11 runs over the next two innings in a 14-8 win over the Texas Rangers.

Darvish, the Japanese ace who won 16 games as a major league rookie last season, threw his fastball in the mid-90s.

Nestor Molina and Brian Omogrosso, the first two White Sox pitchers, both had two shutout innings.

Chicago scored six runs in the third off 20-year-old Cody Buckel. The right-hander, the top minor league pitcher in the Rangers organization last year, walked five of the seven batters he faced.

Evan Meek, in Rangers camp on a minor league contract, allowed five runs and five hits and got only two outs in the fourth.
