|Hamilton: HR, 5RBI|
|Napoli: 2HR, 4RBI|
Mike Napoli added to Boston's woes, also going 3-for-5, with a single, a couple of home runs and four RBI.
The win was the fifth straight for Texas. Their 9-2 mark has them 3 1/2 games in front of Seattle in the AL West and is tied with the LA Dodgers for the best record in the majors.
Your eyes aren't deceiving you; those are the Washington Nationals atop the NL East, with a 1 1/2 game lead over the Mets after topping the Houston Astros, 1-0, in D.C.
|Gonzalez: 7IP 2H 8K|
Gonzalez allowed only two hits in his seven innings of work, fanning eight with two walks. Rodriguez was victimized in the fourth inning for the only run of the game when Jayson Werth doubled and Adam LaRoche singled him home. Rodriguez, despite a 1.96 ERA, is 2-0. Gonzalez, acquired from Oakland after the end of last season, earned his first win in the National League in his third start for Washington. Ty Clippard worked the ninth and Brad Lidge picked up the save, getting the final three outs.
The Nationals have two more games with the Astros, Wednesday and Thursday. They are 7-2 against the NL Central.
