A sixth-inning solo homer by Rougned Odor proved to be the difference as the Rangers edged the Royals 3-2 in Kansas City. Austin Bibens-Dirkx pitched one-run ball into the seventh for his first win of the season. Jake Diekman gave up a solo homer to Mike Moustakas in the ninth before posting his second save. Texas has won five in-a-row. Jakob Junis allowed all three runs in six frames to take the loss. Hunter Dozier had an RBI double for KC, which has lost nine straight and 15 of its last 16 games.
