Three relievers combined to two-hit the Diamondbacks the rest of the way, though closer Keone Kela did not pitch as his trade to the Pittsburgh Pirates was announced once the game concluded. Hazen & Co. will hope these moves help the team retain a playoff spot, as it now holds a wild-card position and trails the NL-West leading Dodgers by just half a game.

In the world of baseball trades, the Arizona Diamondbacks sending pitcher Wei-Chieh Huang and a player to be named to the Texas Rangers for pitcher Jake Diekman isn't much to get excited about. Diekman was acquired from the Rangers and was driven from one clubhouse to another by Arizona's bullpen cart.

Andriese entered Monday's game in the seventh inning and was hit hard in two innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He struck out the leadoff batter in each of his seven innings.

Rangers starter Bartolo Colon (5-10) was knocked around for five runs and seven hits in five innings.

While Lahiri plays his first WGC of the year, Sharma, just 21, features in a third successive WGC in his breakout year. He is coming off a second-place finish at The British Open a few weeks ago and is up to second in the world rankings.

Eduardo Escobar's first-inning sacrifice fly gave the Diamondbacks a 1-0 lead and stood as the game's only run until the fifth, when Choo and Arizona's Steven Souza Jr. swapped three-run homers. The 45-year-old Colon is tied with Nicaraguan Dennis Martinez with 245 wins after losing his previous four outings.

Left-hander Jeffrey Springs came on for Colon in the sixth for his major league debut after being called up from Triple-A Round Rock earlier in the day.

Shin-Soo Choo homered twice and had four RBIs, helping the Rangers rally after a power outage delay to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-5 Monday night. He's 12-2 in 18 career starts against the Giants.
