This is an 8* play on the Texas Rangers.
Texas has split the first two games of this home series versus Kansas City, but they come into the rubber match as winners of three of their last four. The Royals have lost four of their last five.
Lance Lynn will toe the rubber for the Rangers, and he's coming off back to back impressive performances. Lynn (6-4, 4.66 ERA) struck out 10 batters, allowing three runs on seven hits in six innings in a loss at Seattle his last time out. Prior to that he struck out 11 in a home win over the Mariners.
The Royals hand the ball to Homer Bailey, who was just torched by Texas a few weeks ago. Bailey (4-5, 5.79 ERA) allowed six runs on eight hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings in a 16-1 loss to the Rangers in mid May. Such performances have been rather common for Bailey in recent seasons.
Texas ranks 3rd in the majors in runs scored.
