Lance Berkman singles, scores twice in Texas debut

Posted: Updated:

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Lance Berkman singled, walked and scored two runs in his Rangers' spring training debut, a 10-0 win over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday that gave Texas its first exhibition victory this year after an 0-5 start.

Berkman, who was limited to 32 games last year with St. Louis and needed two knee operations, was held out of the first six exhibition games because of a strained right calf.

Winner Derek Holland allowed three hits, struck out two and walked none in four innings.

Jeff Baker had 3 of the Rangers' 18 hits, and Jurickson Profar hit a two-run triple in the second inning.

In his second outing for the Indians, Daisuke Matsuzaka gave up a two-run homer to Mitch Moreland. Dice-K, Cleveland's third pitcher, allowed four hits in two innings.
