ARLINGTON, Tex. -- The 2013 Major League Baseball season started last week and six former Mavericks took the field with their teams.
Hunter Pence of the San Francisco Giants started the 2013 season hitting .286 with two home runs and two RBI. He finished the week with a 5-game hitting streak and had a two-hit game at Los Angeles.
Mark Lowe appeared in three games for the Los Angeles Angels and did not register a decision in 4 1/3 innings. He has allowed two earned runs while walking two and striking out four. He has a 4.15 ERA in the first week of the season.
Boston's John Lackey left his first start of the season with a right biceps strain after just 4 1/3 innings at Toronto. He had an MRI on Monday, which revealed no tear in the injured biceps.
Dillon Gee of the New York Mets was the tough-luck loser in a 2-1 loss to San Diego. He threw 6 1/3 innings allowing only three hits, one run while striking out four.
Ryan Roberts appeared in four games last week for Tampa Bay and got three hits in eight at-bats to hit .375 for the week. He hit safely in three of the four games in which he appeared.
Trey Hillman also started his second season as the bench coach of the Los Angeles Dodgers as they started the season 4-2.
