ARLINGTON - The New York Mets continued to bash Texas pitching, collecting 14 hits on their way to an 8-5 victory over the Rangers.
Derek Holland was the primary victim Sunday, as the Mets tagged him for seven runs on 12 hits. Only three of those runs were earned though as a passed ball and an error opened the door for four of the New York runs.
New York scored once in the first and took charge with a four-run second.
The Rangers cut the deficit to 5-3 in the fifth, but New York answered back with two more in a testy sixth inning. Rangers manager Ron Washington was ejected as well as shortstop Elvis Andrus, who wasn't playing Sunday.
The Rangers led the game 2-1 after a Michael Young homer in the first and an RBI single from Mitch Moreland.
The Mets collected 31 hits over the weekend against the Rangers and outscored them 22-8.
