Carlos Lee arrived in Arlington just in time to make his Rangers debut after being traded from Milwaukee. Lee did well, he had two hits. But it was the Royals who had the hot sticks on their way to an 11-3 win, Friday.
Third baseman Mark Teahen led the way for the Royals offense with three hits and two RBI including his 12th homer of the year.
The Royals 1-2-3 hitters combined to go 6-for-15 with three RBI. David DeJesus, Shane Costa, and Andres Blanco each had two hits in the game. Costa and Blanco both drove in two runs as well.
Luke Hudson was equally as impressive on the mound, giving up just two runs on seven hits in six innings. Joe Nelson, Jeremy Affeldt, and Leo Nunez combined out of the bullpen to keep the game in tact.
