 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Ian Kinsler hit a go-ahead single with two outs in the eighth inning and the Texas Rangers gave their fans plenty of reasons to cheer in the home opener, beating Josh Hamilton and the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Friday.
Hamilton was a five-time All-Star and the 2010 AL MVP with Texas before going to the AL West rival Angels with a $125 million, five-year contract last winter. He finished 0 for 4 and is 1 for 16 this season. The slugger was booed when he was introduced, then cheered when he struck out twice.
Kinsler's sharp single to right was fielded by Hamilton, who short-hopped a throw to the plate as speedy Craig Gentry slid home for the tiebreaking run.
Tanner Scheppers (1-0) pitched an inning in relief of starter Derek Holland. Joe Nathan worked the ninth for his first save, an inning that started with him retiring Albert Pujols and Hamilton on flyouts.
Gentry reached with a one-out single off Scott Downs (0-2) and stole second base.
TIGERS 8, YANKEES 3
DETROIT (AP) - Prince Fielder hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the fifth inning and added a soaring, two-run shot in the seventh to lift Detroit over New York in the Comerica Park opener.
Fielder connected for his first two home runs of the season before a crowd of 45,051, the most on opening day in the 14 years since the ballpark opened.
Doug Fister (1-0) allowed three runs and six hits - including Kevin Youkilis' two-run homer - over five innings. Drew Smyly struck out five in four perfect innings for his first career save.
Ivan Nova (0-1) gave up four runs and five hits over 4 2-3 innings. Fielder greeted Boone Logan with a three-run shot that put the Tigers up 5-3. Alex Avila homered off Shawn Kelley in the sixth.
The banged-up Yankees took another hit, too. Eduardo Nunez, filling in for injured shortstop Derek Jeter, was hit on his right biceps by Fister's pitch in the fourth and left the game. X-rays were negative.
ORIOLES 9, TWINS 5
BALTIMORE (AP) - Chris Davis extended his torrid start with a grand slam and five RBIs, and the Baltimore Orioles used a five-run eighth inning to beat Minnesota in their home opener.
Davis became the fourth player in major league history to homer in his first four games of the season, joining Willie Mays, Mark McGwire and Nelson Cruz. He is 9 for 15 (.600) with four homers and 16 RBIs.
The Orioles trailed 5-4 before loading the bases with one out in the eighth against Casey Fien (0-1). After Adam Jones tied it with an RBI single, Davis greeted Twins reliever Tyler Robertson with an opposite-field shot to left on the first pitch.
Luis Ayala (1-0) worked 1 2-3 scoreless innings for the Orioles.
Brian Dozier drove in three runs for the Twins.
