Texas lost again yesterday, 3-2, with Ian Kinsler and Mitch Moreland each contributing a solo homer to account for the scoring.

Evan Grant has a recap of the game up at the DMN blog.

Colby Lewis went three innings yesterday, and says he was working on his changeup.

Jeff Wilson writes that Kinsler's power surge has not been the result of him getting uppercut-happy -- Kinsler is hitting line drives and focusing on keeping his swing level.

Grant says that, if Kinsler can put together his plate discipline from 2010 and his power and speed from 2009, he'd be the best leadoff hitter in the game.

Jeff Caplan looks at what Nelson Cruz is focusing on improving this spring, after his outstanding 2010 season.

The S-T's notes has a Q&A with Matt Treanor, along with updates on Adrian Beltre, Tanner Scheppers, and Mason Tobin, and the day's injury report.

T.R. Sullivan's notes talk about Yorvit Torrealba's return, ticket sales being up over last year, and players working back from injury.
