DETROIT (AP) -- Josh Hamilton hit a three-run homer during Texas' eight-run first inning, and Mike Napoli went deep for a fifth straight game to lead the Rangers to a 10-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader.
Texas has won eight straight.
The Rangers routed Detroit 10-3 on Thursday night in the first game of a four-game set. After a rainout Friday, they picked up where they'd left off, sending 12 men to the plate in the first against Rick Porcello (1-1).
Matt Harrison (3-0) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 2-3 innings. He struck out six.
Miguel Cabrera and Austin Jackson homered for the Tigers, who send Justin Verlander to the mound for the nightcap.
