Ian Kinsler homered and doubled, and the Rangers tagged left-hander Jeff Francis for 10 runs in three-plus innings as beat Cincinnati 12-2 for their first win this spring at Surprise Stadium as the home team. Nelson Cruz and Mitch Moreland each had three RBIs, and Josh Hamilton drove in two with a double as the final hitter Francis faced. The Rangers expect their offense to pick up the rest of spring as the lineup regulars begin to play more innings. "We've got to get serious right now," said shortstop Elvis Andrus, who was 1 for 3. "We have a few games left, and you want to get that mental approach. These games are important."
