Rangers 5, Blue Jays 3
Starter Josh Towers struck out seven and walked none on Friday. (Aaron Harris/AP)
Lyle Overbay went deep for his second homer of the season, and Adam Lind hit his first this year in the sixth, but it wasn't enough on Friday night. Josh Towers lasted just 4 1/3 innings, giving up three homers and five runs -- all in the third inning.
