Watch the Texas Rangers and the Kansas City Royals lock horns tonight at the Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Texas Rangers have been quite involved in the press lately. With a few trade rumors, the team has the attention of the media and baseball lovers alike (rumors surrounding listening on Yu Darvish and Cole Hamels).
Besides that, there is nothing much to inform about the Rangers as they are quite an underappreciated team without much of a sensational fanfare or going-ons. You can see that their games are not covered much. But nevertheless, the Texas Rangers will enter the field against the Royals, looking forward to defeating them once more. How well their practice shapes up their future is up in the air so far.
The Royals are not going with Jason Vargas (12-3 with a 2.65). Rather than Vargas, Jason Hammel with 4-8, Danny Duffy with 5-5, and Ian Kennedy with 3-6 will be pitching against the Rangers.
The Kansas City Royals are largely considered a second-half team. After the break, the ground becomes their playground and their transformation helps them shift into a different gear come the second half.
They started off pretty small. Slowly winning a few matches, they are a respect team in a short span of few years. It’s almost surprising. Since 2013, the Royals have been serious challengers to the other teams. Second-half players or not, they surely have some surprises up under their sleeves which they can unlease for the victory shots.
All in all, there is a good chance that the Kansas City Royals will take back what they lost in April by defeating the Texas Rangers. Rest is just speculation until the game really unfolds.
