ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Ervin Santana held Texas to four hits in seven innings, Gary Matthews Jr. robbed Michael Young of a home run with a leaping catch in center and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Rangers 5-3 Wednesday for only the fourth 3-0 start in franchise history.
The Angels outscored the Rangers 17-7 and left Texas rookie manager Ron Washington looking for his first victory.
Los Angeles took a 4-0 lead in the first off Brandon McCarthy (0-1), with two of the runs unearned because of shortstop Michael Young's error. Vladimir Guerrero singled home one run and Garret Anderson doubled in another.
Santana (1-0) gave up two runs and four hits in seven innings with six strikeouts, and Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his second save.
Tigers 10, Blue Jays 9
DETROIT (AP) - Curtis Granderson hit his first career grand slam, a drive off the top of the wall, and tied his career high with five RBIs as Detroit built a 9-0 lead.
Nate Robertson (1-0) allowed two runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings, leaving after Aaron Hill's two-run homer.
Toronto closed with seven runs in the eighth off relievers Jason Grilli and Fernando Rodney but the potential tying run was stranded at third when Magglio Ordonez made a running catch of Troy Glaus' drive to right-center. Todd Jones worked the ninth for his first save - after Toronto put two on with one out, Jason Smith flied out and Reed Johnson popped out.
A.J. Burnett (0-1) gave up six runs and five hits and four walks in two-plus innings, his shortest start since June 30, 2004.
Indians 8, White Sox 7
CHICAGO (AP) - Grady Sizemore hit a two-run, two-out homer off Matt Thornton (0-1) to overcome a 7-6 deficit in the seventh inning, and Jason Michaels made a game-ending catch on Joe Crede's drive with two on while falling down backward at the warning track.
Aaron Fultz (1-0) went two-thirds of an inning for the win, and Joe Borowski got three outs for the save around a pair of walks.
The temperature at game time was announced at 31 degrees with a 15 mph wind and a wind chill of 19.
