ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Nelson Cruz hit his third career grand slam, Josh Hamilton drove in three runs and the Texas Rangers beat the Los Angeles Angels 13-6 on Sunday night to hand Jered Weaver his first loss.
The slam by Cruz capped a five-run third for the Rangers. Hamilton chased Weaver an inning later with a two-run double that made it 8-2.
Weaver (5-1), in his second start since throwing a no-hitter, gave up 10 hits and eight runs in only 3 13 innings, his shortest outing since 2009.
Neftali Feliz (3-1), the closer-turned-starter for Texas, struck out five while allowing two runs over six innings.
Elvis Andrus matched a career high with four hits for Texas, which took two of three from the Angels.

"I was singing the song, 'Hit...

Josh Hamilton is playing out of his mind. The crazy thing is, what he's doing has nothing to do with luck; he's just that good.

So if the greatest hitter in the major leagues can do something, then it's probably not a bad idea for some Red Sox players to follow suit, right? NESN Nation's Dan Duquette asked our Twitter followers to suggest which Red Sox players they'd like to see sign up for the social media site next. Check out who they...
Achilles (Tennessee Mash – RCL 25) had another good week and increased their lead in the overall standings.
