Rangers beat Padres 5-2 before 40,000 in Alamodome

omeone finally took advantage of the short right-field wall at the Alamodome when Leury Garcia lined a three-run homer over the 285-foot sign to lead the Texas Rangers past the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Saturday.

The Rangers swept both games played in the Alamodome, which is designed primarily for football and special events such as the NCAA Final Four but had not hosted baseball until this weekend.

A crowd of 40,569 pushed San Antonio's two-day total to 75,210.

Texas opens the regular season Sunday night in Houston against a new AL West rival in the Astros. San Diego travels to New York to face the Mets on Monday.
