Rangers-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Though their offense has been struggling of late, the Kansas City Royals continue finding ways to win.

Looking to provide Jason Vargas with some much-needed run support, the AL Central leaders try to complete their first home sweep of the Texas Rangers in seven seasons Wednesday night.

A day after scoring all of its runs in the first four innings then holding on for a 4-3 victory over Texas (53-85), Kansas City needed a tiebreaking single from Salvador Perez in the eighth to win 2-1 on Tuesday.
