Nathaniel Lowe, Rangers complete 10-inning comeback over Royals

nathaniel lowe

Nathaniel Lowe delivered a 10th-inning RBI single, lifting the visiting Texas Rangers to a 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals to win the three-game series.

The Rangers rallied with single tallies in the eighth and ninth to tie the game 2-2. With one out in the top of the 10th, Lowe lined a 1-2 pitch into center field to score Leody Taveras with the go-ahead run, completing the come-from-behind win.

Taveras doubled and scored on Corey Seager’s eighth-inning sacrifice fly.

With one out in the ninth, Jonah Heim connected for first-pitch homer off the right-field foul pole, snapping Texas’ four-game drought without a home run and ending Royals closer James McArthur’s string of nine consecutive scoreless outings.

Kirby Yates (3-0) allowed one walk with two strikeouts in two scoreless, hitless frames for the win. David Robertson pitched a hitless inning to earn his first save as the Rangers improved to 2-0 in extra-inning games.

The Royals grabbed a 2-0 lead as their first four hits went for extra bases against Texas starter Jon Gray.

Bobby Witt Jr. tripled and scored on Vinnie Pasquantino’s sacrifice fly in the first to open the scoring.

With two outs in the third, Witt and Pasquantino hit consecutive doubles for a 2-0 lead.

Witt’s 19 extra-base hits lead the American League.

Gray finished seven innings, allowing two runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts.

Recalled hours earlier from Triple-A Omaha to make his first start of the year for Kansas City, Daniel Lynch IV walked two to load the bases in the first but escaped damaged by inducing an inning-ending grounder from Josh Smith.

Lynch retired 13 of his last 14 batters. He allowed two singles and two walks with six strikeouts.

Michael Massey extended his hitting streak to a career-best eight games and MJ Melendez had two hits for the Royals, who fell to 1-1 in extra-innings.

The game was delayed by rain one hour, 22 minutes prior to the first pitch.
