Texas takes opening series, 7-3 win over Angels

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Lance Berkman, David Murphy and Ian Kinsler homered for the Texas Rangers, who won 2 of 3 games in their home-opening series against the Los Angeles Angels after a 7-3 victory Sunday night even though Yu Darvish was far from perfect.

Darvish (2-0) came within one out of a perfect game in his first start five days earlier at Houston, but trailed 2-0 only five batters into his 2013 home debut.

Berkman had a two-run shot in the bottom of the first off Jered Weaver (0-1), and Murphy added a solo shot two batters later to put Texas ahead to stay.

Both starters pitched only five innings. Darvish had a blister on his right ring finger and Weaver had a strained left (non-throwing) elbow when he fell awkwardly diving out of the way of a liner.

Josh Hamilton, booed throughout his return to Texas, had three hits for the Angels.
