Yang makes first start in majors; Rangers beat Twins 3-1

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Hyeon-Jong Yang made his first major league start after 14 years in the Korea Baseball Organization, getting the Texas Rangers off to a strong start in an eventual 3-1 win against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.

Yang, the former South Korea MVP, struck out seven of the first nine batters he faced and eight overall in 3 1/3 innings. Making a spot start after two relief appearances earlier this season, Yang gave up four hits.

Yang, who came to his postgame video conference wearing the cowboy hat representing the Rangers player of the game, opened the game by striking out Byron Buxton, Josh Donaldson and Nelson Cruz.
