More history today.

Ian Kinsler and Nelson Cruz became the first teammates in MLB to hit Home Runs in each of their first three games to start a season.

The lefty's line yesterday:  7/1/1/5/2/8/0
The Rangers swept the Red Sox, outscoring them 26-11 in the three game set.

Matt Harrison looked crazy-sick-good out there yesterday and if he is the real deal this year then the rest of the AL better watch out.  Harrison was acquired in the Mark Teixiera fleecing, along w/ our Closer, Neftali Feliz, and our starting Shortstop, Elvis Andrus.  Harrison has always had good stuff but was a nibbler and lacked confidence, the killer instinct.  This Spring, Harrison swore up and down that he had turned the corner and deserved to be in the rotation.  (Harrison apparently did a lot of reading this offseason; philosophy and baseball and philosophy of baseball books, apparently.)  This kind of transformation happened last year with another Ranger lefty, CJ Wilson.  Like I said, Watch out if Maddux and Wash have done it again.

Keep on reading Harry.  We all want to see more games like yesterday's.
