ARLINGTON (AP) – 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.
