Lowe homers, rookie Arihara beats Rays 5-1 for 1st MLB win

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Nate Lowe hit a solo homer and Texas rookie Kohei Arihara got his first major league victory, pitching into the sixth inning Wednesday night as the Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1.

Arihara (1-1) allowed two singles and a double over 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his third start since signing with the Rangers after six seasons with the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters of Japan's Pacific League. He struck out five and walked none.

"I obviously was glad I could contribute to the team winning. I hope I can continue to do that," Arihara said through a translator. "It's a good start. ... Obviously, I'm very happy."
