So far so good for the Texas Rangers. They opened up their season with three convincing wins over the Boston Red Sox.
With a combined 10 runs in the series, the Red Sox hitters could not string any scoring together after and only batted .221 in the series. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia went hitless in 10 plate appearances and SS Marco Scutaro could not seem to find the ball either. On the bright side, David Ortiz already hit his first two homers of the season, plus the top half of the order is batting .332. 1B Adrian Gonzalez also recorded 3 RBI in the opening series, and is fitting his new role in a Red Sox uniform very well.
Nelson Cruz and Ian Kinsler both homered in each of these games, and became the first duo to do so in the first three games of a season. Off to a hot start again, Cruz already has three HR, and had 7 in the first ten games last year. If Cruz can stay healthy this season he could easily finish with 40+ HRs.
