Texas Rangers Team Report - April 25
(Sports Network) - The Texas Rangers put forth their best offensive effort of
the season yesterday in a 16-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox in the rubber
match of a three-game set at the Ballpark in Arlington.
Rafael Palmeiro and Juan Gonzalez each slammed three-run homers to lead Texas.
Palmeiro, Gonzalez and Michael Young each collected three hits for the
Rangers, while R.A. Dickey (1-1) pitched three innings, allowing one run,
after replacing starter Ryan Drese to earn the victory.
Before the game, the Rangers announced on Thursday that pitcher Ismael Valdes
will miss his next scheduled start because of tightness in his right shoulder,
and he could be headed for the disabled list.
Gonzalez and Palmeiro are just two of five Rangers with at least 11 RBI this
Texas hopes that the momentum from last night's convincing victory will carry
into tonight's series opener with the powerful New York Yankees.
Colby Lewis will take the hill tonight for the Rangers and will be looking to
build upon his finest outing of the season. The 23-year-old righthander, who
is 3-0 with a 4.43 ERA, surrendered just one run and four hits over six
innings in a 2-1 win over the Oakland Athletics.
Lewis, who has allowed more than three runs just once in his four starts, will
be making his first career start against the Yankees.
The Yankees have hit a major league high 44 homers this year and have allowed
just seven. Texas is second in the league with homers with 39.
