    Mark Trumbo and Paul Goldschmidt homered, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to an 8-7 victory over a split-squad of Texas Rangers on Tuesday.

    Trumbo and Goldschmidt had three hits apiece, and Blake Lalli singled in the winning run in the ninth. Lalli is trying to make the team as a backup catcher.

    Texas center fielder Delino DeShields had two hits, including a solo homer, and two RBIs, bolstering his case for a spot on the Rangers' opening-day roster. DeShields is 7 for 17 in his last four games.

    Nick Martinez, who was recently selected for the fifth spot in Texas' rotation, was charged with six earned runs in 4 1-3 innings.

    Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson labored through four innings, giving up six runs and 11 hits. Trevor Cahill then came in and struck out five in two scoreless innings.
