Offenses start out slow as both team can only manage a single run through 4 innings. The Rangers would bust out in the bottom of the 6th scoring 3 runs. Richie Zisk and Toby Harrah with big hits to give the Rangers the lead. The seventh would provide more fireworks as Zisk again would provide a big hit, this time a Grand Slam homer to left.
Alexander and the Ranger bullpen would do the rest and secure the 8-3 victory and get the Rangers right back into this series.
Final Score: Rangers 8, Royals 3
WP: Doyle Alexander (1-0)
