Royals Vs. Rangers Final Score: Mike Moustakas Homers As Royals Win Fourth Straight

The Royals used some early offense and a solid start from Vin Mazzaro to earn a 7-4 win in Texas for Kansas City's first series sweep of the season, albeit a two-game series.

Mazzaro went five innings in the start, allowing three earned runs on seven hits, as the powerful Texas offense was held in check for the second straight night.

The Royals scored four runs in the opening frame, including a two-RBI single from Brayan Pena. Kansas City added another run in the second and Mike Moustakas hit a solo homer in the third. Texas scored three runs over the next two innings, but the Royals bullpen held strong, allowing one hit — a solo home run in the ninth — over the last four innings.

The Royals went 4-1 on the five-game homestand and have won six of their last seven games. They now come home for a five-game homestand.
