Kinsler, Cruz power Rangers to sweep of Red Sox

Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz became the
first set of teammates to homer in each of the first three games in
a season, and Matt Harrison pitched the Texas Rangers to a 5-1
victory over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday and a sweep of their
season-opening series.
David Murphy and Mike Napoli also homered as Texas' first three
hits - and four of five - were all solo homers.
The reigning AL champion Rangers really thumped the favorites
for this year's pennant, hitting 11 home runs on the way to
outscoring them 26-11 in the series.
Texas is 3-0 for the second time in three years. Boston fell to
0-3 for the first time since 1996, when the Red Sox began 0-5.
