Rangers Edge Royals For Fifth Straight Win


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.
