Rangers, Royals bring winning feeling into four-game set

The Texas Rangers are on an offensive roll and look to continue that recent prowess on Thursday as they open a four-game series against the Kansas City Royals at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.

Kansas City will send left-hander Danny Duffy (1-6, 6.88 ERA) to the mound for the series opener while the Rangers will counter with Austin Bibens-Dirkx (0-0, 0.00), who was called up from Triple-A Round Rock to make his season debut.

Texas outbashed New York on Wednesday, beating the Yankees 12-10. Jurickson Profar's three-run double in the sixth was the go-ahead hit that allowed the Rangers to win for the second straight night and snap the Yankees' string of eight consecutive winning series.
