Cruz homers again, Rangers beat Mariners 6-4

Nelson Cruz became the third player in major league history to homer in the first four games of a season, Derek Holland pitched six effective innings and the Texas Rangers remained one of four unbeaten teams with a 6-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night.
Texas (4-0) is off to its best start since opening 7-0 in 1996,
following up a three-game weekend sweep of Boston.
Baltimore (4-0), Philadelphia and Cincinnati (both 3-0) are the
other undefeated teams.
Cruz joined Willie Mays (1971) and Mark McGwire (1998) as the
only players to go deep in each of their first four games of a
season.
Holland (1-0) was given the No. 4 spot in the rotation out of
spring training and he cemented his role by allowing three runs and
seven hits with five strikeouts and one walk.
