Choo drives in go-ahead run in 8th as Texas beats Royals 1-0

- KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Cole Hamels could have been frustrated or intimidated or annoyed by the effortless way Kansas City counterpart Danny Duffy was slicing up the Rangers lineup Saturday night. Instead, he rather enjoyed it. The quick innings allowed Hamels to get into a rhythm of his own, and the left-hander kept matching Duffy's scoreless innings. It wasn't long after Hamels departed that Texas finally broke through, with Shin-Soo Choo flaring a lazy fly ball down the left-field line with one out in the ninth for a 1-0 victory — the Rangers' 12th straight over the Royals

Beltre, Napoli homer as Rangers rally to 5-3 win over Royals

- KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Adrian Beltre's three-run homer had knotted the game, and with the momentum swinging the way of the Texas Rangers, manager Jeff Banister gazed at Mike Napoli sitting on the bench. "It was time to pull the trigger," Banister said. So he summoned Napoli to pinch hit for Joey Gallo with a runner aboard in the seventh, and the veteran first baseman responded with a go-ahead two-run homer to left field, sending the Rangers to a 5-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals to open the second half Friday night

Missouri court tosses man's convictions in double killing in Florissant
