SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Paul Maholm pitched three steady innings and Mike Baxter went 2 for 2 with two RBIs for a split squad of Los Angeles Dodgers in their 5-5 tie with the Texas Rangers on Saturday.

The game was halted after nine innings.

Adrian Gonzalez walked with the bases loaded for the Dodgers. Maholm allowed one run on three hits with four strikeouts and no walks.

Gonzalez, who is hitting .353 in seven games, drew a five-pitch walk from Tanner Scheppers in the third to bring home Justin Turner.

Baxter, claimed off waivers from the New York Mets last fall, had a double and a sacrifice fly.

Shin-Soo Choo, who signed a $130 million, seven-year contract with the Rangers this offseason, went 0 for 2 with a strikeout, dropping his average to .176. Choo did drive in a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth.
