Royals Vs. Rangers: KC Takes Early 5-0 Lead In Texas

Looking to sweep a two-game series against the Rangers, the Royals have jumped all over Texas early, owning a 5-0 lead after two innings.

Kansas City took a 4-0 lead after the first. Billy Butler drove home a run on a 6-5 fielder's choice to give the Royals the first run of the game. Later in the inning, Brayan Pena hit a two-RBI single and Chris Getz followed that with an RBI single. In the second inning, Butler drove in another run with a double to extend the lead to 5-0.

Through two innings, Vin Mazzaro has given up two hits, but no runs.

The Royals have won three straight games and have not swept a series this season, even if this series is just two games.
