Vlad stays in yard, drives in another run

ARLINGTON, Texas –- Vladimir Guerrero's streak of homers came to an end, but he managed to drive in another run.

Elvis Andrus scored on Guerrero's sacrifice fly to center in the bottom of the third. It was the first time in four plate appearances that Guerrero didn't go deep.

It's interesting that the Royals opted to pitch to Guerrero in that situation. There were runners on second and third with one out.

Wouldn't you consider walking a guy with a career average of .409 in the ballpark, especially if he had homered three consecutive at-bats?

Kansas City's Zack Greinke pitched to Guerrero and paid a one-run price.

Rangers 3, Royals 1 after three.
