Rangers Slam White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Matt Treanor homered and drove in a career-high four runs, and the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 9-5 Wednesday night after losing Vladimir Guerrero to an eye injury during batting practice.

Guerrero, the designated hitter, was scratched from the lineup after a ball he hit ricocheted off the cage and struck him above the left eye. The Rangers said the eight-time All-Star had "significant swelling," but X-rays showed no structural damage. He is day-to-day.

Even without its best hitter, Texas still managed to pound Gavin Floyd (2-6).

Treanor capped a three-run first with a two-run bases-loaded double, and led off the third with his third homer. He was also robbed in the sixth when right fielder Carlos Quentin raced back for a lunging catch on his sacrifice fly.
