If Mark Redman wants to stay in Kansas City with the trade deadline drawing to a close today, he might have done himself a favor in his last start. Redman probably discouraged all suitors giving up six runs on nine hits in only three innings, as the Royals lost to the Rangers 15-2, Sunday.
The bullpen certainly didn’t help stop the hemorrhaging. Relievers Brandon Duckworth and Leo Nunez combined to give up nine runs in five innings.
All-star Michael Young had four hits and two RBI for the Rangers. Mark DeRosa also had four hits while driving in four runs. Gerald Laird and Ian Kinsler each chipped in with three hits, Kinlser also had three RBI.
Starter John Koronka earned his seventh win of the year, holding Kansas City to two runs in five innings while striking out five.
