ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Chris Archer had a career-high 12 strikeouts in seven innings and Matt Joyce hit the first of Tampa Bay's three early home runs in a 10-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.

Archer (8-6) had his only two walks in the first three batters he faced. But the hard-throwing right-hander got out of the inning when Alex Rios went down swinging, the first of six consecutive Rangers he struck out.

It was Archer's third career game with at least 10 strikeouts, and two have come against the Rangers. He struck out 11 against Texas in a home game on Sept. 8, 2012, in his third career start.
