It’s been a successful trip to Kansas City so far for the Texas Rangers who have now taken the first two games of this series against the Royals. Tuesday’s contest was another big offensive night for the Rangers who put up 10 in the series opener and followed that up with a 7 spot on Tuesday. The pitching was dominant as well, making it a perfectly executed game for Texas who is trying to work themselves back to .500 on the season. The Royals have now lost four straight games and continue to fall further down the standings. They are currently occupying the last-place spot in the AL Central at 26-47 with no hopes of improving anytime soon. The form as of late goes all to the Rangers and their hot offense now gets to face Zack Greinke who has just one win on the year. Greinke gives the Royals some hope but the Rangers will finish the sweep today.
