HOUSTON -- Rick Ankiel and the Astros made an impressive debut in the American League, trouncing the Texas Rangers 8-2 Sunday night in the major league opener and giving Bo Porter a win in his first game as manager.

To get a win like that, I think it just brings us all closer together, Ankiel said. I know from my standpoint and from ours our big thing is that we want to just continue to keep having fun, and obviously winning is fun. It s a step in the right direction, and it was good.
