Former Missouri Tiger Ian Kinsler hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning to give the Rangers a 3-2 win over the City Royals on Saturday night.
With the score tied at 2, Royals starter Gil Meche (0-4) walked Michael Young with one out in the eighth. Josh Hamilton followed with an infield single, and Young advanced to third on Vladimir Guerrero’s flyout.
Kinsler, who went 2 for 3 was down 0-2 in the count before lining a single to score Young. Meche probably pitched his best game of the year though…at least he battled and managed to stay out of big trouble despite seven walks, although all three runs scored were walks.
Meche is now 0-4 with an 8.24 ERA
