8-10 - Elvis is tonight's walkoff hero for Rangers over Royals

Texas wins third straight, picks 9th inning to walk it off

Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

I don't know how you feel but I believe winning is much better than losing.

Player of the Game: Nick Martinez was brought in because A.J. Griffin ate too much seafood on the road and caught a bad case of the gout. That's not a joke. That's truly what happened.

Martinez picked up right where Griffin left off as a Rangers' No. 5 starter by going seven innings and allowing just one run. Martinez even had a no-hitter through 5 1/3 innings. I like Nick Martinez.

Up Next: Texas and Kansas City finish off this series with the Rangers going for a four-game sweep of the Royals. Yu Darvish makes the start for Texas against Jason Hammel of KC. The getaway day first pitch is scheduled for 2:05 pm CT.
