HOUSTON -- Rick Ankiel and the Astros made an impressive debut in the American League, trouncing the Texas Rangers 8-2 Sunday night in the major league opener and giving Bo Porter a win in his first game as manager.
“To get a win like that, I think it just brings us all closer together,” Ankiel said. “I know from my standpoint and from ours our big thing is that we want to just continue to keep having fun, and obviously winning is fun. It’s a step in the right direction, and it was good.”
