|Hamilton, Cruz Hit HRs, Ogando Throws Shutout
|ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz both homered in their return to the Texas Rangers lineup and Alexi Ogando threw a five-hitter for his first career shutout, 4-0 over the Chicago White Sox Monday night.
The sluggers were back in the Texas lineup together for the first time in almost six weeks.
Hamilton, the reigning AL MVP, got his first homer of the season when he pulled a liner over the right-field wall in the first off John Danks (0-7), who also threw a complete game. Hamilton added a double in the eighth.
Cruz hit his eighth homer, a two-run homer in the sixth.
Ogando (5-0) struck out six and walked three.
Danks struck out three and walked two in his third career complete game.
