The Royals go for their fourth straight victory and a series sweep of Texas today at the K. As Mike Votta points out in his game preview, the Royals have won three straight five times, but have only extended the winning streak beyond this point once.
The Rangers send Simi Valley Ca. native
CKameron Loe (5-8, 5.59 ERA) to the hill. Loe's now spent four big league seasons bouncing back and forth between the bullpen and the rotation, a method the Royals have used to the great frustration of many.
And to that end, the Royals counter with Leo Nunex (0-0, 2.25 ERA), who today will make his 50th big league appearance, but just his second as a starter.
• RR favorite Sam Mellinger on Matthews and his loyalty to the Royals.
• Dutton on Dotel rumors.
Congrats to "buddyball" for correctly predicting last night's final score (although "royalsnation" also predicted 6-5, three hours later). He'll receive a free RR T-Shirt to commemorate his wisdom.
