After Sunday night’s marathon at Comerica Park, the Royals could certainly use a day off. Instead they flew through the night to Texas for a four-game series with the Rangers.
Forgive me if this blog post is brief. I did not sleep, and am typing at the airport in Houston, in between flights.
Here are the pitching matchups for this series:
Monday, 7:05 p.m.: Danny Duffy (2-1, 4.55 ERA) vs. Colby Lewis (2-2, 2.61 ERA).
