Colon returns to win and beats Greinke in opening duel

Veteran pitcher Bartolo Colon continued on the winning track by working five innings in which he helped the Texas Rangers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 in an interleague game.

Columbus won his first start since he was enthroned as the Latin American pitcher with the most triumphs in the history of the Major Leagues.

Venezuelan wide receiver Robinson Chirinos hit a three-run homer, which represented the advantage in the fourth inning, to end the nine-start right-hander Zack Greinke (12-8) allowing two runs or less.

Chirinos, who went 4-2, also hit a RBI single in the eighth inning and was the leader of the Rangers’ offense.

Along with Chirinos, his compatriot Elvis Andrus was 4-1 with a career scored.

While Dominicans Adrián Beltré went 4-1 with one run scored and Ronald Guzmán 4-2 with one run scored and one hit to complete the Latin American batting support for the Rangers’ offense.

The Diamondbacks began the night with a game advantage over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fight for the scepter of the National League West Division.

Colón (7-10) retired 10 batters in a row after allowing double A.J. Pollock and Steven Souza Jr. in the first episode.

Pollock’s line was miscalculated in right field by Joey Gallo.

The 45-year-old Dominican law won his 247th triumph, with two more than the Nicaraguan Dennis Martínez. Colon has four more victories than his compatriot Juan Marichal, a Hall of Famer.
