SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer, Colby Lewis pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the Texas Rangers beat an Arizona Diamondbacks’ split-squad 5-4 Sunday.
Fielder homered to right-center field in the fourth on the first pitch from Josh Collmenter, who was the Diamondbacks’ 2015 opening day starter. Robinson Chirinos went 3 for 3 and led off the four-run inning with a single.
Lewis gave up four runs on six hits, including home runs to Chris Owings and Phil Gosselin, and struck out six in 6 2/3 innings.
Yoan Lopez, a 23-year-old Cuban right-hander the Diamondbacks signed for $8.27 million in January 2015, tossed three scoreless innings, allowing four hits, walking one and striking out four.
Matt Bush made his second spring appearance and worked a scoreless eighth. Bush was the first overall pick in the 2004 draft and signed with the Rangers on a minor league deal in December after being released from prison in October.
