CHICAGO -- The last-place Texas Rangers vented two months worth of frustration. Jack Wilshere Jersey . Robinson Chirinos homered twice and Colby Lewis pitched a six-hitter to lead Texas to a 16-0 rout of the Chicago White Sox, the largest shutout victory in team history. J.P. Arencibia, Adrian Beltre and Shin-Soo Choo also went deep for the Rangers, who set a season-high in runs scored and snapped a four-game losing streak. Their last five-homer game came last August at U.S. Cellular Field. "You dont figure against a guy like (John) Danks that will happen," manager Ron Washington said. "We just kept putting runs on the board, and thats what we have to continue to do. I just hope this is a reward for us to turn things around and we can get more consistent." The Rangers had 18 hits. The laugher ended with designated hitter Adam Dunn on the mound in the ninth inning. The 6-foot-6, 280-pounder allowed one run on two hits and a walk. He did not speak with reporters afterward. "If (Dunn) hits someone, we cant charge him -- hes too big," joked Beltre, who added, "He was throwing power sinkers. Obviously, they were too nasty for J.P." Arencibia fouled out. Lewis (8-8) recorded his second career shutout, both against the White Sox in Chicago. He walked one and struck out seven. "The offence came through and gave me a lot of relaxation, especially after the first two innings," Lewis said. "I was able to pound the strike zone and get some quick outs." "Colby Lewis was the show tonight," Washington said. "I mean, he executed his pitches as well I have seen see him execute them. He never lost focus. He looked like the Colby we used to know." Danks (9-7) was rocked for nine runs on five walks and eight hits, including four home runs, in 4 2/3 innings. The left-hander leads the American League with 23 homers allowed. After Chirinos slammed a solo homer in the second inning, Danks walked the bases loaded. Arencibia cleared them on a two-out double. Three innings later, Arencibia and Chirinos went deep with the bases empty to stake the Rangers to a 9-0 lead. The multi-homer game was the first for Chirinos in his career. "Its a shame to go out there and get your butt kicked on a night you feel so good," Danks said. "It doesnt happen every night when you feel great, and tonight I did. I felt real good about everything in the bullpen." Choo concluded the home run derby with an opposite-field homer off Maikel Cleto in the sixth inning. The Rangers needed only five pitches to strike first. Choo led off the game with a double and scored on Alex Rios base hit. Beltre followed with a two-run blast into the left-field bleachers. TRAINERS ROOM Rangers: Right-handed pitcher Nick Tepesch (3-8) will rejoin the rotation on Wednesday afternoon. He skipped one turn because of a sore left knee. After two starts, Jerome Williams will move back to his customary bullpen role. White Sox: Outfielder Alejandro De Aza was a late scratch after he complained of soreness in his bruised left knee in the pre-game warm-up. His status is day-to-day. He sustained the injury when he hit a foul ball off the knee on Monday night. Moises Sierra took his place in the outfield. Pitching coach Don Cooper was not available because of a recurrence of vertigo-related symptoms. He is unlikely to travel with the team on its next road trip. ON DECK Left-hander Chris Sale (10-1, 2.09) will oppose Tepesch (3-7, 4.84) in the series finale on Wednesday. Olivier Giroud Jersey .J. - Trying to learn and absorb the new West Coast offence being installed by new offensive co-ordinator Ben McAdoo, the New York Giants wrapped their final organized team activity Thursday before a three-day mini-camp next week. Custom Arsenal Jerseys . Snedekers best result so far this year is a tie for eighth place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. He sits 113th in FedEx Cup standings and has dropped to 31st in world rankings — not the results expected from a player ranked fourth in the world only two years ago. http://www.arsenalsoccerpro.com/Authentic-Tomas-Rosicky-Arsenal-Jersey/ . Mesoraco hurt his hamstring while scoring from second in Friday nights 5-4 loss at Atlanta. Chapman was hit by a line drive during an exhibition game on March 19, breaking his nose and a bone above his left eye. The left-hander looked strong while throwing 43 pitches in batting practice before Saturday nights game against the Braves.Get it straight already... Last week, six days after sustaining a concussion, franchise quarterback Mike Reilly is rolled out by the Edmonton Eskimos in a must win game against the Montreal Alouettes. The Eskimos muzzled their “Top Dog”, virtually handcuffing the young quarterback by limiting what he does best: his ability to run, improvise, and attack a defence with his unmatched will to do whatever it takes to win. That plan went south in a hurry and by half time, Reilly was back in his cage. The next quarterback up for the Eskimos wasnt Kerry Joseph, who has 11 years of experience under his belt. Joseph only had two reps all week during practice. Im scratching my head right now. The Eskimos had planned all week long to go with Jonathan Crompton, a young and promising quarterback from the University of Tennessee. Problem was, Crompton had only thrown 22 career passes in the CFL heading into that must win game! Let me recap: you toil with the decision to start your franchise quarterback after he sustained a concussion just six days ago, limit his package – removing what he does best, dont practice or play your experienced gunslinger, and go with a virtual rookie in a must win game! Wow, I know theres no giving an inch or concessions in football, but on behalf of the dwindling fan base, what is going on? Now this week, with the playoffs virtually out of reach and the season almost over, you want to remove the muzzle on Reilly and set him free to attack the game – likke he should have been last week – and risk further meaningless injury? I dont get it! Now is the time to get Crompton the reps he was given last week. Alex Iwobi Jersey. Again, Im scratching my head here. I know there is a disconnect between management and coaches with who is second on the depth chart and thats why we saw Crompton last week instead of Joseph in a must win game. But how about dealing with your No. 1 quarterback properly? If he was cleared to play last week by third party doctors, then why the muzzle and shackles in a must win game? Manage play calling to keep him out of harms way and make certain he was not exposed to protection breakdowns. What? Are we still talking about the same team? Reilly is an old school quarterback. Hes a warrior and hes proven he can compete, win, and lead this franchise. Its been a long season; rest your star! Now is the time, and for the next four weeks, to see what you have in Crompton. If Joseph is not in the cards for the future, move Jacory Harris onto the active roster and see what hes got to offer too! Head coach Kavis Reed knows all about the seriousness of injuries in football; he was forced to retire prematurely with a neck injury. Not only that, Reed is as passionate as they come in the coaching ranks. Hes uniquely dialed in to his players, both on and off the field. Simply put, he cares! So do I! Sometimes you are too close to the trees to see through the forest. So I ask, why Reilly now? More head scratching...
