Rangers Vs. Angels Final Score: Texas Thrashes Los Angeles, 9-2

Game two of Texas' three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels went much more according to plan. A night after being dominated by Jered Weaver, Yu Darvish limited the Angels to two runs over seven innings, as the Rangers won a laugher, 9-2.

The Rangers got the scoring started early. Michael Young singled home Elvis Andrus in the first. In the second inning, the Rangers knocked starter Ervin Santana out of the game. Mike Napoli, Yorvit Torrealba and Adrian Beltre all homered off of Santana in the second inning, as the Rangers took a commanding 6-0 lead.

Santana wound up surrendering six earned runs in one and 2/3 innings, giving up eight hits without walking or striking out a batter.

Darvish, meanwhile, held Los Angeles' offense in check. Darvish gave up just two runs on three hits, while walking four in seven innings. Darvish struck out 11 Angels in the contest.

Napoli starred on offense, belting two home runs in the first three innings of the game. Ian Kinsler, Elvis Andrus, Yorvit Torrealba and Craig Gentry also recorded multihit games, and every member of Texas' starting lineup recorded at least one hit.

The rubber match of the series is set for Sunday night in Los Angeles.
