Rangers are streaky hitters at home

No question the Rangers are a better hitting team on home turf.

Vladimir Guerrero’s first-inning RBI single, coming after a brush-back pitch, extended his hitting streak at Rangers Ballpark to 17 games. Nelson Cruz, currently on the disabled list, has an active 16-game home hitting streak, which Josh Hamilton matched with 13th home run of the season in the first inning.

The Rangers have eight hits through three innings and lead Seattle, 7-2.
