ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Mitch Moreland hit a two-run homer, rookie right-hander Justin Grimm took a shutout into the sixth inning and Texas snapped its first three-game losing streak of the season with a 9-5 interleague victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Grimm (5-3) allowed four hits through five innings and was replaced after giving up three runs in the sixth.
The 24-year-old AL rookie leader in wins and strikeouts gave up eight hits and three runs, two earned, with three strikeouts.
The Rangers beat the Diamondbacks after they were swept in a doubleheader in Arizona on Monday and had the first of two games in Texas rained out Wednesday night.
