Rangers go for series victory versus Royals

The Texas Rangers have, by necessity due to a slew of injuries, relied on their young players to pick up the slack though most of the first quarter of the 2018 season.

But it was a pair of the Rangers' older and established players who carried them to a 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday afternoon to guarantee a split of a four-game series.

The Royals will send right-hander Jason Hammel (1-5, 5.70 ERA) to the mound Sunday afternoon in the series finale at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, to oppose Rangers ace left-hander Cole Hamels (3-4, 3.38).
