The White Sox managed to get to Rangers ace Yu Darvish a bit, but Texas scored six runs in the sixth to blow open a 4-4 tie and win 10-6 on Tuesday in Arlington.

Matt Lindstrom (1-2) took the loss in relief, being charged with the go-ahead run despite only facing two batters. He got Jeff Baker to fly out before walking Geovany Soto, who came around on Mitch Moreland’s double for the first of the six runs.

Soto got the start over former White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzysnki. Adam Dunn hit his sixth homer, although it came with the Sox down 10-4.

Darvish (5-1) allowed four earned runs in six innings, including Dewayne Wise’s game-tying two-run shot in the top of the sixth.

Padres 13, Cubs 7: Edwin Jackson got roughed up, to the tune of eight earned runs in 4 2/3 innings, offsetting four Cubbie home runs in Chicago.

San Diego evened the four-game series by going up 8-0 with five runs in the top of the fifth, although the Cubs got four back in the bottom half.

Jackson (0-4) allowed 11 hits and struck out six. Luis Valbuena, Starlin Castro, David DeJesus and Cody Ransom homered for Chicago. The Padres banged out 17 hits, three of them homers.

Edinson Volquez was just good enough, allowing four runs in 5 2/3 innings, to improve to 2-3.

Cardinals 2, Reds 1: Jaime Garcia worked eight innings and rode Matt Holliday’s two-run home run to victory in St. Louis.

It was Holliday’s only hit of the game and made a loser of Bronson Arroyo (2-3), who worked seven innings without striking out a batter.

Garcia only struck out three, and Edward Mujica struck out the side in the ninth to convert his fifth save in as many opportunities and lower his season earned-run average to 1.00.
