Nomar Mazara starred for the Texas Rangers in the Cactus League opener as Texas beat the Kansas Royals 6-2 to begin their spring slate.

Colby Lewis made the start and went two scoreless innings which was a stark improvement over last year when he allowed six runs in his spring debut. The Rangers scored six runs with four of them driven in by Mazara as he's now 6-6 (if you count Monday's intrasquad game) this spring. Mazara also hit the Rangers' first official Cactus League dinger of the spring season.

Here's slow motion video of Mazara taking a beautiful swing and sending the baseball probably to notorious Bell Road.
