The Texas Rangers have taken the first two of the games of the series against the Kansas City Royals as they won 4-2 on Saturday. Josh Hamilton put the Rangers on the board first as he hit a two-RBI single to get out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. First baseman Mike Olt added another run in the second inning with a sacrifice which scored Mike Napoli to lead 3-0 after two.
Rangers starting pitcher Scott Feldman was able to even his record at 6-6 as he pitched seven-plus strong innings where he gave up six hits, a pair of runs and struck out four batters. Mike Adams and Alexi Ogando pitched the final 1.1 innings for the Rangers to close out the Royals, and those two did not allow the Royals to get a man past first base.
