KANSAS CITY Cheap MLB Jerseys , Mo. (AP) — Texas Rangers manager Chris Woodward was hoping Willie Calhoun’s arrival from Triple-A Nashville would help ignite a club that had slogged through five straight losses.Calhoun did exactly that.A two-run homer in the first inning by the former top prospect set the tone, Ronald Guzman added a two-run shot of his own and the Rangers rolled to a 6-1 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.“He comes in and is kind of the spark player that gets us going,” Woodward said about Calhoun. “I’m not surprised. I’ve seen that bat. He’s got amazing hands with that swing. It was nice to see.”Shin-Soo Choo added a solo shot in the ninth inning and Nomar Mazara matched a career high with four hits as the Rangers won for the sixth time in their last eight games against Kansas City.Mike Minor (4-3) got through five rocky innings, allowing one run on eight hits and two walks.“I would grade it as a ‘C’ by his standards,” Woodward said. “But it showed a lot of our guys that you don’t have to have your best stuff to be successful.”Guzman drove in a run in the fourth before sending a hanging pitch from Jorge Lopez (0-5) booming into the center field seats in the sixth. The two-out shot broke open a 3-1 game and sent Lopez, who had plunked two batters and struggled with command all night, trudging toward the showers.Lopez allowed seven hits and two walks while striking out seven.“Command got him,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He was fighting command up to the point he elevated his pitch count. He got burned on his two center-cut curveballs for home runs.”Calhoun, called up from the minors before the game, got the Rangers off to a good start. The erstwhile elite prospect sent a first-inning pitch from Lopez soaring into the seats over the right-field bullpen, the no-doubt shot staking Texas to a 2-0 lead.“His first night, he comes up and when you have a guy like Mike Minor pitching Cheap MLB Baseball Jerseys , getting ahead is huge,” Mazara said. “He really got us going.”Kansas City answered by manufacturing a run in the bottom half against Minor, whose last appearance at Kauffman Stadium came as the Royals’ closer in the final game of the 2017 season. But after Adalberto Mondesi’s RBI single, the veteran left-hander escaped the rest of the inning unscathed.It wasn’t the last time he negotiated trouble.Minor also stranded runners on second and third in the second and fourth, and he pinned another runner 90 feet from home in the fifth. By the time that inning ending, Minor had survived a shaky night and has still allowed just 11 earned runs over his last 55 innings.“He was making pitches close to what he wanted to do. I just kept helping him out,” the Royals’ Whit Merrifield said. “He was throwing fastballs up and in, out of the zone. I don’t know why I kept swinging at them, but I kept swinging at them.”The Rangers’ bullpen allowed only one hit over the final four innings.STATS AND STREAKSMinor allowed leadoff singles in four consecutive innings. … Calhoun’s homer was the fourth of his career. … Choo’s homer snapped an 0-for-13 skid. … Lopez and the Reds’ Sonny Gray (0-4) are the only two pitchers in the majors with at least nine starts and no wins. … Kansas City was 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position after going 9 for 19 the previous night.INJURED ELVISTexas put shortstop Elvis Andrus on the injured list with a strained right hamstring after he left Tuesday night’s game in the seventh inning. Woodward is hopeful Andrus will be ready to return in 10 days. “You don’t want this to linger with him,” Woodward said.ROSTER MOVESCalhoun was joined from Nashville by left-hander Jeffrey Springs to provide a fresh arm in the Texas bullpen. Right-hander Wei-Chieh Huang was optioned to the same club.TRAINER’S ROOMRangers right-hander Shawn Kelley could be activated in the next couple of days, Woodward said. Kelley has been dealing with a bacterial infection. … Woodward said right-hander Ariel Jurado will likely start Saturday against St. Louis. Woodward plans to get “creative” with his starter Sunday because left-hander Drew Smyly has a slight ankle sprain and his next turn could get pushed back.UP NEXTThe Royals wrap up their homestand Thursday by sending Homer Bailey (4-3, 4.83 ERA) to the mound against Texas right-hander Lance Lynn (4-3 , 5.48). Kansas City has lost 12 straight rubber games dating to May 30 last year, and has not won a series against the Rangers since July 2016. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said the injury that sent left-hander Derek Holland to the injured list last month was legitimate and praised the veteran’s competitive spirit, a day after Holland said he was sidelined with a “fake injury.”Zaidi said Sunday that medical records back up the legitimacy of Holland’s injury, described by the team as a bone bruise on his left index finger.He said there are often differences of opinion between players and management about the severity of injuries.“The guy gets hit by a truck, he can’t walk out on the field. That’s I guess an unequivocal injury, but there’s a lot of gray area beyond that,” Zaidi said.Holland blasted the Giants’ front office Saturday night after he learned from manager Bruce Bochy that he was being moved to the bullpen.“To be honest I have no idea what they’re doing,” Holland said. “I don’t mean that by Bochy and them, it’s more the front office. They keep changing a lot of things. I did a fake injury. I’m not happy about that. But at the end of the day I’m going to do whatever they ask me to do.”The 32-year-old was placed on the IL April 29, retroactive to the previous day. In his first outing after being activated, Holland gave up seven runs in 2 2/3 innings Thursday at Colorado amid heavy snowfall.“I feel equally bad that when he did get back out there, it was in a blizzard Cheap MLB stitched jerseys ,” Zaidi said. “I don’t know how much of kind of the cold and weather, interacting with whatever lack of feel he has in the finger, contributed to what happened in Colorado.”Zaidi said Holland didn’t want to go on the IL last month and was told he would only miss one start.“Guys want to play,” Zaidi said. “I love the fact that Derek wants to be out there. That’s one of the reasons we brought him back.”Holland signed a one-year, $7 million contract in January to return to San Francisco for a second year. He is 1-4 with a 6.75 ERA.Zaidi stood by comments he made to the San Francisco Chronicle Saturday night about Holland’s injury. He told the newspaper that Holland had an MRI and the decision to put him on the IL was “collaboratively made.”“His use of the word ‘fake’ probably comes from him feeling he could continue to pitch with it,” Zaidi told the Chronicle.On Sunday, Zaidi said Holland’s anger was understandable given the team’s struggles. The Giants are last in the NL West.“There’s a lot of frustration right now. We’re not playing as well as we’d like,” Zaid said. “I think fans are frustrated, as a front office we’re frustrated. I understand players being frustrated, but we’re going to do everything we can every day to get better.”
