Rangers Lose to Jays
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Vernon Wells homered two more times in
his homecoming series and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Texas
Rangers 7-4 on Wednesday night.
Wells' tiebreaking two-run homer in the fifth put Toronto ahead
to stay, and he led off the ninth with another drive.
The longest-tenured Blue Jays player in his 12th season, Wells
grew up in Arlington and still lives in the area. This is the first
time he has gotten to open a season at home, and he has three
homers in the two games.
Rich Harden had an erratic debut for the Rangers, with eight
strikeouts and plenty of misses too without getting a decision. The
right-hander was done after giving up consecutive bases-loaded
walks in the fourth.
Brian Tallet (1-0) pitched 6 2-3 innings for Toronto.
