Rangers edge Royals for first Cactus League win

Rangers postseason ace Colby Lewis threw two shutout innings in his Cactus League debut, and Mike Napoli and Ian Kinsler homered for Texas in a 12-11 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Monday.
Lewis, 3-0 with a 1.71 ERA in his four playoff starts for the AL
champions last season, struggled a bit with his command, throwing
only 17 of 33 pitches for strikes. Still, he walked just one batter
and struck out one.
Napoli, traded twice in a five-day span last month, hit a
two-run homer for Texas. That came in the same inning that Kinsler,
who is back in the leadoff spot, hit a three-run shot.
Kansas City got homers from its top two prospects in camp, Eric
Hosmer and Mike Moustakas.
Royals starter Vin Mazzaro allowed two hits in two scoreless
innings, throwing 16 of 25 pitches for strikes.
