Chicago,  IL (SportsNetwork.com)  - Robinson Chirinos homered twice to lead an 
offensive  onslaught  by the Texas  Rangers in a  16-0 drubbing of the Chicago 
WhitSox on Tuesday. 

Adrian Beltre, J.P. Arencibia and Shin-Soo Choo all went deep for the Rangers, 
who  snapped a four-game losing streak by scoring a season high in runs. Texas 
scored just eight runs over that stretch. 

"We  know that even though we have a young team, (the young guys) have talent, 
they  know  they can  hit and  it's just  a matter  of getting  it done on the 
field," said Beltre. 

Colby  Lewis (8-8)  went the distance in his second career shutout. The right- 
hander scattered six hits and a walk, striking out seven in the win. 

John  Danks (9-7) was battered for nine runs on eight hits and five walks over 
4 2/3 innings. 

"I  felt great," said  Danks. "It's a shame to get your butt kicked on a night 
when you feel good." 

Choo  doubled to  begin the game, then  later scored on a single by Alex Rios. 
Beltre followed Rios with his 16th homer of the season that staked the Rangers 
to a 3-0 lead. 

Chirinos  led  off the  second inning  with his 10th  home run  of the year to 
increase  the  cushion. Three of the  next five Texas hitters reached base via 
the walk before Arencibia laced a double to left that cleared the bags. 

Arencibia  homered to begin the sixth, then Chirinos clubbed his second of the 
night  three batters  later to push the  margin to 9-0. Choo homered an inning 
later to make it a 10-run game. 

With  the bases loaded  and one out in the seventh, Daniel Robertson joined in 
on  the hit  parade with an RBI  single to right that scored two. Elvis Andrus 
added  a run-scoring double  and Robertson later scored on a wild pitch from a 
strikeout  of  Jim Adduci. Robertson  sent another RBI  hit to right an inning 
later. 

Because  the game was  well lost by the ninth, Chicago opted to use designated 
hitter Adam Dunn as a reliever. Dunn, who never pitched an inning over his 14- 
year  career,  got Andrus  to ground  out before Adduci  reached on a fielding 
error  by Alexei  Ramirez. Arencibia popped out after a Beltre walk, then Adam 
Rosales ripped a single to center that plated Adduci. Rougned Odor sent a high 
fly  ball  to the edge of  the warning track in  left that was caught by Dayan 
Viciedo to end the inning.
