Recap: Detroit vs. Texas

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Ian Kinsler finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored, as Texas kept rolling with a 10-3 win over Detroit in the opener of a four-game series.

Michael Young and Nelso Cruz also collected three hits and drove in two runs each for the Rangers, who matched the 1989 squad (11-2) for the best start to this point in any season.

Mike Napoli homered to help Yu Darvish (2-0) pick up the win. The 25-year-old right-hander walked five, but allowed two hits and a run while fanning five over 6 1/3 innings.

"We tried to make it simple today," said Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba of Darvish's approach. "He threw a lot of fastballs tonight."

Don Kelly finished 3-for-4 and knocked in all three runs for the Tigers, whose four-game win streak came to a halt.

Adam Wilk (0-2) was tagged in the loss for 10 hits and three runs -- two earned -- over four-plus frames.

"I threw a lot of strikes, and they ended up getting a lot of hits," Wilk said.

Already ahead by four, Texas piled on with five runs in the eighth thanks to RBI doubles from Cruz, Yorvit Torrealba and Kinsler plus a run-scoring hit by Elvis Andrus to put Texas into double digits.

Detroit's only answer to the onslaught was Kelly's two-run single in the home half.

Young knocked in Kinsler to put the visitors on the board in the first, and Napoli doubled the edge with his leadoff shot in the second.

Prince Fielder walked to start the home fourth, moved to third on a Delmon Young double and scored on Kelly's groundout.

Texas picked up two more in the fifth as Ramon Santiago's error on a Cruz grounder with the bases loaded plated one run and a Torrealba sacrifice fly brought home another.

In the sixth, with runners on second and third, Young's RBI fielder's choice pumped the Rangers' edge to 5-1.
