Rangers reign in the rain
Rangers earn a wet win
It was raining on game night, and the field was a mess, but that didn't affect the Rangers, who took the rain-shortened opener. Texas jumped on Sox pitching for six runs, while Kameron Loe earned his first career shutout. Hank Blalock had two RBIs, and Gary Matthews Jr. had three.

In-Clement weather for Sox
Matt Clement never quite found his groove on a rainy Friday, giving up four runs on six hits in five innings. Reliever Mike Holtz didn't fare much better, allowing two more runs. Boston's offense had an off-night as well, and ended up being shut out in a rain-shortened contest.
