Jo Adell had three hits and three RBIs in his season debut to help the Los Angeles Angels to an 11-3 win against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night in the second game of their four-game series in Arlington, Texas.

Adell, the 10th pick in the 2017 MLB Draft, was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake and started in right field. He doubled twice, singled and walked.

Phil Gosselin also had three hits and drove in three runs, Jack Mayfield slugged a two-run homer, and David Fletcher and Shohei Ohtani added two hits apiece for the Angels.

Angels left-hander Jose Suarez (5-4) allowed three runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked one.

Andy Ibanez had a two-run homer for the Rangers, who were trying to win four in a row to match their season high.

Rangers right-hander Jordan Lyles (5-8) allowed six runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked three.

Adell delivered a two-run double with two outs in the third to give the Angels a 3-1 lead.

Gosselin came through with a two-out single in the fifth to stretch the lead to 4-1.

Jose Iglesias was thrown out at home trying to score from first on a double by Brandon Marsh in the sixth, but Mayfield followed with a two-run homer to make it 6-1.

Ibanez got those runs back with a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth to make it 6-3.

Gosselin and Adell each collected RBI singles as the Angels tacked on four more runs in the seventh to stretch the lead to 10-3.

Rangers right fielder DJ Peters, who was claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday, made his first start and delivered a check-swing single in the second inning.

Curtis Terry followed with a sinking liner just out of the reach of Marsh in center, allowing Peters to score from first for a 1-0 lead.

Gosselin singled in Fletcher to tie the score 1-1 in the third, and the Angels took the lead for good later in the inning on Adell’s first double.
