Rangers' road warrior wins
Starter Kevin Millwood extended his undefeated record on the road, keeping the Royals to just two runs on seven hits to pick up his fifth travel victory. Adding run support, designated hitter Brad Wilkerson and second baseman Ian Kinsler each homered.

Royals flounder in opener
Third baseman Mark Teahen seemed to be the only Royals batter to challenge Texas starter Kevin Millwood. Teahen went 2-for-4 against the right-hander, contributing both of the Royals' runs with an RBI single in the second and a solo homer in the fourth.
