Ogando Solid into 7th as Rangers Beat Royals
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Alexi Ogando allowed only one run pitching into the seventh inning, Michael Young extended his hitting streak to 13 games and the Texas Rangers defeated the Kansas City Royals 3-1 Saturday night.
Ogando (3-0) held the Royals scoreless until Kila Ka'aihue led off the seventh with a homer on the right-hander's 14th and final pitch. He struck out five, walked one and allowed five hits.
By losing the first two games in the three-game set, the Royals (12-9) became the last team in the majors to lose a series this season.
After Elvis Andrus had a one-out walk in the third off Kyle Davies (1-2), Young had his second single of the game. Adrian Beltre then hit a sacrifice fly before Young stole second base and scored on a single by Nelson Cruz to make it 3-0.
