Matt Treanor homered and drove in a career-high four runs, and the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 9-5 on Wednesday night after losing Vladimir Guerrero to an eye injury during batting practice.
Guerrero, the designated hitter, was scratched from the lineup
after a ball he hit ricocheted off the cage and struck him above
the left eye. The Rangers said the eight-time All-Star had
"significant swelling," but X-rays showed no structural damage.
He is day-to-day.
Even without its best hitter, Texas still managed to pound Gavin
Treanor capped a three-run first with a two-run bases-loaded
double, and led off the third with his third homer. He was also
robbed in the sixth when right fielder Carlos Quentin raced back
for a lunging catch on his sacrifice fly.
