ARLINGTON, Texas -- Justin Grimm joined the Texas rotation as a stopgap. The rookie right-hander pitched more like an ace Thursday. Mitch Moreland hit a two-run homer and Grimm took a shutout into the sixth inning to help the Rangers snap their 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 while Texas cooled off Arizona starter Brandon McCarthy on the way to a 9-0 lead. The AL rookie leader in wins and strikeouts was replaced after Arizonas three-run sixth, and trails only ace Yu Darvish in victories on the Texas staff. The 24-year-old Grimm, who made his debut last year, came up from the minors in April when opening day starter Matt Harrison went on the disabled list with back trouble. He figured to stick around awhile with Harrison out until at least August, and was the AL rookie of the month for April. He gave up eight hits and two earned runs with three strikeouts in his third straight May win after starting the month with all three of his losses. "Hes gotten better as far as confidence-wise, believing and knowing that belongs here," catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. "It just a progression with young guys. He continues to get better. You can see it in his face. You can see it when he takes the mound in his mannerisms." McCarthy (2-4) had allowed one run in 25 innings when the Rangers scored six in a span of four outs in the second and third. The outburst started when centre fielder A.J. Pollock misplayed a line drive by Nelson Cruz into a double. Pierzynski brought Cruz home with a double and scored on a two-out single from Leonys Martin. The Rangers went up 6-0 in the third on three straight run-scoring hits -- a double from Adrian Beltre, a single by Cruz and a two-run homer from Moreland that hit near the top of the foul pole in right. McCarthy lost for the first time since April 26 in his shortest outing of the season. He gave up nine hits and six runs in just 2 2-3 innings. "I didnt have any life on my stuff," said McCarthy, whose ERA at Rangers Ballpark is 7.65 in four starts since he left Texas in 2009. "It was a fight for me. A good lineup hits those pitches. Its not an easy lineup to get out." Grimm lost his shutout when he gave up four straight hits in the sixth, starting with a double from Paul Goldschmidt, who tied a career high with four hits. An error by Martin in centre on a single by Miguel Montero led to an unearned run. "Its just all about battling and competing against these guys," Grimm said. "Be aggressive with them, but not overly aggressive obviously." 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. Moreland was hit by a pitch on the shoulder by reliever Josh Collmenter the next time he came up after his 11th home run and scored on a two-run single from Elvis Andrus that made it 9-0. "Honestly, I hadnt even thought about us losing three games," Moreland said. "Were going to go out and play our style of ball. We got out of it for a couple of games, but came back out today and made it work and it was a good win for us." The Diamondbacks got within 9-5 in the seventh on RBI singles from Goldschmidt and Martin Prado off Texas reliever Michael Kirkman. Neal Cotts replaced Kirkman with two outs and struck out Montero with the tying run on deck. Arizona had the tying run on deck again in the ninth when Robbie Ross got a game-ending double play from Cliff Pennington, who replaced Eric Chavez in the first inning after Chavez strained his right oblique on a swing. "The guys came back," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. Texas prospect Jurickson Profar had a career-high three hits a day after learning that his stay with the Rangers would be at least two weeks longer because second baseman Ian Kinslers rib injury has been slow to heal. Moreland and David Murphy, who hit his fifth homer, were among four Rangers with two hits. Notes: Gibson said Chavez was on his way back to Arizona for an MRI. If Chavez is headed for the disabled list, the Diamondbacks might bring up Willie Bloomquist from a weeklong rehab assignment at Triple-A Reno. ...

AUBURN, Ala. -- The Auburn Tigers have far more concerns than beating the latest pre-Iron Bowl FCS opponent.The 18th-ranked Tigers go into Saturday nights game against Alabama A&M without quarterback Sean White and tailback Kamryn Pettway, among other injury issues.That probably wont matter much in the outcome of this game for the Tigers (7-3) against the Bulldogs (4-6) but the uncertainty could linger into the Iron Bowl against No. 1 Alabama.Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said on his weekly radio show Thursday night that hell start senior Jeremy Johnson, who hasnt thrown a pass since the opening game against Clemson. Johnson opened last season as the starter.White passed for just 27 yards in last weeks loss to Georgia, when he aggravated a right (throwing) shoulder injury. That combined with some dropped passes and the absence of the Southeastern Conferences leading rusher Pettway led to a miserable offensive outing.Pettway remains out with a left leg injury. The big question mark is the status of White and Pettway for the Iron Bowl.Its got to be the next man up mentality, Tigers coach Gus Malzahn said.But questions abound about the next man at tailback and quarterback, too. QB John Franklin III, who has been the backup all season, is a dynamic runner but has only passed for 94 yards all season. Johnson struggled with mistakes and decision-making last season.At tailback, No. 2 rusher Kerryon Johnson has been playing through an ankle injury and Stanton Truitt (ankle) is out, along with H-back Chandler Cox (leg). Freshman Malik Miller returned to practice this week after missing the last five games with a knee injury, though its not assured that hell be ready to go.Starting safety Johnathon Ford has been working at running back, where he had six carriies for 73 yards against lesser competition as a freshman before moving to defense fulltime.ddddddddddddPunt returner/receiver Marcus Davis is also out for the final two games with a shoulder injury.---Some other things to look for in the Alabama A&M-Auburn game:WHOS THE QB: White was the SECs highest rated passer entering the Georgia game. Johnson is also mostly a dropback passer while any game plan with Franklin would likely include a number of zone read plays and designed QB runs. It could be a chance to play both and sort out the Iron Bowl starter if Whites not healthy.KERRYONS CARRIES: Malzahn indicated early in the week that the ideal scenario might be to rest Kerryon Johnson, too, but he might not have that luxury. The tailback has played in the past three games after sitting out against Arkansas. But at the same time we need to win this game, too, Malzahn said, so Im not ready to make a call on that right now.SENIOR SENDOFF: Its the final home game for a group of seniors that includes Ford, guard Alex Kozan, cornerback Joshua Holsey, right tackle Robert Leff, punter Kevin Phillips and wide receiver Tony Stevens.COWARTS OUT: This would have been a good time for backups like defensive end Byron Cowart to log some extra snaps. But the former top recruit is recovering from an emergency appendectomy he underwent on Wednesday.FULLERS HOUSE: Bulldogs assistant head coach Andy Fuller was an All-Southeastern Conference tight end for the Tigers and a member of the 1993 undefeated Auburn team. He was also on the Alabama A&M staff in 2012, the teams only other meeting.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
