CHICAGO (AP) — 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 Rangers’ 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. Texas’ last five-homer game came last August at U.S. Cellular Field.

White Sox pitcher John 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 Leagie with 23 homers allowed.

White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn pitched the ninth inning, allowing one run on two hits and a walk.

Lewis (8-8) recorded his second career shutout, both against the White Sox in Chicago. He walked one and struck out seven.

After Chirinos slammed a solo homer in the second inning, Danks walked the bases loaded. Arencibia cleared them on a two-out double, the first of his three hits in the game.

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.

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.

TRAINER’S 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.
