Royals-Rangers Preview

(AP) -- After a hiccup against the NL's worst team, the Kansas City Royals resumed their impressive run against the worst club the AL has to offer.

The Texas Rangers could be hard-pressed to slow down Kansas City on Saturday night given the power shown recently by Billy Butler and Josh Willingham.

The visiting Royals (71-56) bounced back from Wednesday's 5-2 loss at last-place Colorado with a 6-3 victory over the hapless Rangers (49-78) on Friday. Kansas City has won 23 of 29, turning an eight-game deficit in the AL Central into a 2 1/2-game edge over Detroit in that span.
