Rangers Vs. White Sox: Texas Up 2-0 After Three

On a beautiful spring afternoon in Arlington, the Texas Rangers are ahead of the Chicago White Sox 2-0 through the first three frames of Opening Day.

Ian Kinsler got the Rangers off to a good start, hitting a double down the third base line to lead off the bottom of the first. Elvis Andrus moved Kinsler to third on a sacrifice bunt. Josh Hamilton gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead on a sacrifice fly to center field, scoring Kinsler, for his first RBI of the season.

Ian Kinsler added to the lead when he knocked a two-out, two-strike home run to left in the bottom of the third. He's now 2-2 with a double, home run, two runs scored, and an RBI.

Colby Lewis has pitched great through his first three innings. He's only given up two hits, with five strikeouts and a walk. He's commanding his fastball and cutter well and is able to throw his other pitches for strikes, keeping the White Sox hitters off balance.

Dayan Viciedo knocked a double through the left-center gap to lead off the top of the third. But Lewis responded by striking out the next three Chicago hitters.

Yorvit Torrealba also gunned down his first runner of the season when Alejandro de Aza tried to steal second in the top of the first.
