Royals 4, Rangers 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Gordon hit a two-run homer, Jason Vargas pitched into the seventh inning and the Royals finished a three-game sweep. Vargas stranded four runners in scoring position before turning over a two-on, two-out mess to Kelvin Herrera, who escaped the jam. Kansas City extended its AL Central lead to 11/2 games over the Tigers. It begins a crucial road trip Friday against the Yankees and Detroit.
