    hitter.Darvish connected for only the second homer by a Rangers pitcher, and
    Adrian Beltre hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning Wednesday night for
    a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds and a split of their two-game interleague
    series.Darvishs solo shot to center field was one of three homers by the
    Rangers, who wasted a three-run lead before rallying late. Beltres double off
    Blake Wood (5-2) snapped a 5-5 tie.The right-handers next start will be in an
    American League game with the DH preventing him from getting to try for an
    encore.Just take the DH off and let me hit, he said, through a translator.Well,
    maybe not.If I get another at-bat, I might strike out, he said. I want to keep
    that (home run) image in my mind.Darvishs big moment came in the fifth when he
    ended his 0 for 12 career slump. He tipped the bill of his batting helmet as he
    rounded third base and raised an index finger briefly as he headed for the
    plate. The only other Rangers pitcher to homer was Bobby Witt in 1997 at Dodger
    Stadium, in only their third interleague game.The way he did it -- his whole
    at-bat looked good, Beltre said. That wasnt a cheap home run. He hit it to
    straight center field.Darvish looked good in batting practice before the game
    and assured manager Jeff Banister that he could hit.When he came back after
    hitting the home run, he reminded me that hed told me he could hit, Banister
    said. Thats a big boy home run to center field. That ball was struck well.Hes
    the fifth pitcher to homer against the Reds this season.It was just a really bad
    pitch, something he could handle, pitcher Tim Adleman said.Nomar Mazara had a
    three-homer, and Ian Desmond followed Darvishs homer in the fifth with one off
    Adleman. The Reds have given up 10 homers in the last three games, including
    four sets of back-to-back homers.Darvish let a 5-2 lead slip away. He walked a
    season-high five batters and hit a batter in six innings. A passed ball and an
    error led to two unearned runs.Jake Diekman (4-2) went one inning and got the
    win. Sam Dyson pitched the ninth for his 28th save in 32 chances.The win snapped
    Texas three-game losing streak. The Rangers havent lost more than four straight
    this season. They improved to 28-8 in one-run games, best in the majors.Carlos
    Beltran was hitless in four at-bats, leaving him in an 0-for-24 slump that
    matches his career high from 2000.Darvish helped the Reds score two runs in the
    second. He hit Adam Duvall and walked two to load the bases. Duvall scored when
    Ramon Cabrera grounded into a forceout, and another run scored on Jonathan
    Lucroys passed ball.Shortstop Elvis Andrus throwing error set up another
    unearned run in the fifth. Cabrera had an RBI double as the Reds tied it with
    three runs in the sixth, aided by another walk.INTERLEAGUEThe Rangers are 11-6
    in interleague play, with their pitchers going 4 for 21 at the plate. The Reds
    are 5-12.TOP TWOThe Rangers host the Cleveland Indians on Thursday, matching the
    top two teams in the AL. The last time they met so late in a season with both
    teams leading their divisions was 1999, according to STATS. The Rangers have won
    five of their last seven games with the Indians.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: RHP Tanner
    Scheppers had no problems after his third rehab appearance, an inning for
    Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday night. Hes missed the season recovering from
    surgery on his left knee.Reds: SS Zack Cozart missed his seventh straight game
    with an inflamed left Achilles tendon. He worked out on the field before the
    game. Manager Bryan Price said he could be back in the lineup this weekend.UP
    NEXTRangers: LHP Cole Hamels (13-4) opens a series in Arlington against the
    Cleveland Indians. Since the All-Star break, Hamels is 4-2 with a 1.85 ERA in
    seven starts.Reds: After a day off, they open a series in Arizona. LHP Brandon
    Finnegan (8-9) has 13 quality starts and has been the victim of blown saves four
    times.---Follow Joe Kay on Twitter:
