Puig, Carson hit 3-run homers; Dodgers beat Rangers 11-6

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Yasiel Puig hit a three-run homer on the first pitch he saw, Matt Carson added another three-run shot, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Texas Rangers 11-6 on Friday night.
Texas starter Anthony Bass and Los Angeles starter Erik Bedard combined to allow 10 runs in the first inning before the scoring finally settled down in the opener of a split-squad, two-game set at the Alamodome.

Bass, who's on a minor-league contract but had previously shown some promise this spring training, gave up hits to the first three Dodgers he faced. It was capped by Puig's blast.
Carson then followed with his home run, and when the Dodgers batted around, lead-off hitter Joc Pederson slapped a solo home run that put Los Angeles up 8-0.
