ARLINGTON -- Michael Young looked right at home in his first Major League start at first base on Tuesday night, making a diving catch against Seattle's Adam Kennedy look easy for the first out of the ninth inning.
"That was awesome," manager Ron Washington said. "Kennedy is dangerous, and it was good to take him out."
Young also handled all the throws from his teammates, raising up on one high throw from shortstop Elvis Andrus and getting his foot back on the bag in time for the out.
"It was fun over there," Young said. "There were a lot of ground balls, but to everyone else. My instincts over there are starting to kick in and I'm starting to get a little more reactionary."
