Rangers get started fast
Rangers 7, Tigers 4
Lefty John Rheinecker will start Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader for the Rangers. (AP)

Sammy Sosa's RBI single drove in Jerry Hairston for the first run of a six-run first inning for the Rangers, which included a grand slam by Victor Diaz. Michael Young went 4-for-4 to contribute to the offense, which held up for the victory despite a shaky start by John Rheinecker.
