Rangers hammering Rays early, often

The Rangers have started their trip to Tampa Bay with a bang.

After four innings, they've already matched their season high with 15 hits, including home runs by Mike Napoli, Endy Chavez and Mitch Moreland. Rays starter Wade Davis lasted only 2 2/3 innings.

Elvis Andrus already has three hits and two runs scored in four at-bats. Josh Hamilton is 2-for-2 with two RBIs. Napoli's home run was a three-run shot in the third inning.

Matt Joyce has the only two hits off Texas starter Derek Holland. The Rangers lead, 8-1, entering the fifth inning.
