Ohlendorf is latest Rangers pitcher to be hurt

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Ross Ohlendorf exited after two innings with right groin tightness, Texas' fifth starting pitcher injured in spring training, and the Rangers beat a Milwaukee Brewers split squad 12-5 Sunday.

Ohlendorf joins Yu Darvish, Ross Detwiler and Anthony Ranaudo as departing starts prematurely with injuries. Derek Holland has been limited to one inning in a "B'' game after experiencing a sore shoulder early in camp.

Ohlendorf, who spent all of last season on the disabled list, allowed one unearned run and one hit, while striking out four before feeling a twinge in his groin on his final pitch. He has nine strikeouts in four innings over his first two starts.

The Rangers sent 10 men to the plate in a seven-run first, highlighted Jake Smolinski's two-run triple. Mitch Moreland added a two-run single in the first and drove in another run with a third-inning single.

Brewers starter Taylor Jungmann retired only one of the eight batters he faced and walked four. Carlos Gomez homered for the Brewers.
