Astros beat ailing Rangers 5-1

Jed Lowrie and Colby Rasmus homered for the Houston Astros, who beat the injury-plagued Rangers 5-1 on Friday to spoil the home debut of new Texas manager Jeff Banister.

Rangers starter Derek Holland (0-1) left after only one inning because of tightness in left shoulder, and outfielders Shin-Soo Choo and Ryan Rua also made early exits because of injuries.

Collin McHugh (1-0), who was 7-0 with a 1.77 ERA his final 10 starts as a rookie last season, struck out four and allowed one run over six innings.

Lowrie hit a solo homer in the first off Holland. Rasmus had a two-run shot in the ninth of closer Neftali Feliz pitching in a non-save situation.

No. 9 hitter Jake Marisnick had three of Houston's 10 hits and drove in two runs. The Astros totaled only three runs and eight hits in their season-opening, three-game series against Cleveland.
