Millwood, Rangers defeat Royals 2-1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kevin Millwood pitched his second straight complete game and the Texas Rangers took advantage of some poor Kansas City Royals defense to score two unearned runs in a 2-1 win Tuesday night.

Throwing errors by Miguel Olivo and Mike Aviles led to the Rangers' runs.

The Royals have lost 16 of 19 and have been outscored 123-54 in that span to fall a season-worst 20 games below .500.
