Wright gets start as Texas goes for fifth straight win

Jul 27, 2007 - 1:01 PM Texas (46-56) at Kansas City (44-57), 8:10 pm EDT

KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Ticker) - Jamey Wright will take the mound as the Texas Rangers look to win their fifth consecutive game when they square off with the Kansas City Royals in the opener of a three-game series Friday.

Wright (3-2, 4.15 ERA) lasted just 3 1/3 innings, giving up three runs - one earned - and one hit with six walks in an 8-5 triumph over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday.

The Rangers are 5-2 when the 32-year-old righthander starts this season.

The Royals will counter with Brian Bannister (6-6, 3.68), who has posted a 6-3 record after not earning a victory over the first two months of the season.

The 26-year-old Bannister gave up just one run and four hits with three strikeouts over seven innings in a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

Kansas City's 7-0 victory over the New York Yankees on Thursday snapped a three-game losing streak.
