Texas Rangers Beat Round Rock Express In Exhibition

On Monday night, the Texas Rangers defeated their AAA affiliate, the Round Rock Express, 10-8 in an exhibition game.

Derek Holland started for the Rangers in his final tuneup before his 2012 debut on Saturday. Holland needed 78 pitches to make it through three innings, giving up three runs on six hits while striking out five and walking none. Luis Hernandez and Yangervis Solarte both hit home runs off of Holland.

Of note for Round Rock, Julio Borbon went 2-5 with an RBI and a triple in the lead off spot. Borbon was optioned to AAA earlier on Monday, as Craig Gentry and Brandon Snyder claimed the final bench spots for Texas.

Leonys Martin also picked up two hits for the Express.

Adrian Beltre, Josh Hamilton and Mitch Moreland all homered for the Rangers.

On Tuesday, the Rangers will take on the Diablos Rojos del Mexico at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington as they march toward Opening Day on Friday.
