TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Raul Ibanez homered off Yu Darvish and the Los Angeles Angels topped the Texas Rangers 7-4 Tuesday.

Ibanez hit a leadoff homer in the second and Chris Iannetta had a long double later in the inning.

Darvish gave up two runs on three hits and a walk in three innings.

Angels starter Tyler Skaggs, a solid candidate for the back end of the Angels' starting rotation, allowed three hits and two runs with two walks in 2 1-3 innings of his spring debut.

Ibanez and Mike Trout each got two hits for the Angels.
