Team Follows Beltre's Lead in Blowout Loss

The Texas Rangers had been waiting for Adrian Beltre to finally go yard.

The veteran leader has eclipsed the 30-home run mark the past three seasons for Texas and was still searching for his first home run when he stepped to the plate on Tuesday evening at Coors Field, where he's historically been very successful.

He finally got it, sending a first-inning offering over the wall to give the Rangers an early 1-0 lead. From that point, it was all downhill — both for the Rangers and Beltre.

Beltre finished the night 1-for-5, and the Rangers lost 12-1.

Beltre is now hitting .264 with a homer and seven RBIs about five weeks into the season. Of course, Beltre missed two weeks due to a strained quad that put him on the 15-day disabled list, but the Rangers are still waiting for him to catch fire in Beltre fashion. And don't sweat it, because it's bound to happen.
