The Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Globe Life Field. The two teams have split this series so far. The Rangers won the first 6-4, but in the second game it was the Royals that won 8-2. 

The Royals currently sit with a 10-18 record overall and they had lost three games in a row before winning on Wednesday. In each of the previous two losses the Royals gave up six runs in each of the games, and the pitching has been a big issue for this team all season. The Royals only have three players that have had at least 10 RBIs. The Royals offense is ranked 29th and their pitching staff is ranked 26th. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Texas Rangers who sit with a 12-17 record overall and they have lost two of their last three games. Over the last two losses, the offense has scored only two runs total, and if they want to get the job done here, they are going to need the offense to get going. Adolis Garcia has been the top player for the Rangers hitting four home runs and driving in 18 RBIs.
