Rangers-Royals Preview

(AP) -- The Kansas City Royals are still clinging to the AL Central lead after holding on to beat baseball's worst team.

Kansas City tries to continue its success against the visiting Texas Rangers and spoil Derek Holland's season debut Tuesday night.

The Royals (75-61) had dropped three straight and five of seven before winning 4-3 in Monday's opener. Salvador Perez went 3 for 4 with a homer and three RBIs and Yordano Ventura pitched into the seventh inning. Greg Holland came on to record his major league best-tying 41st save, striking out two in his third consecutive day of work.
