Ventura's first complete game not enough as Royals fall 3-2

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Yordano Ventura's first career complete game wasn't enough to get the Kansas City Royals their first winning streak this month.

Mitch Moreland's second home run of the game broke a tie in the eighth inning and Cole Hamels earned his 12th win of the season as the Royals lost to the Texas Rangers 3-2 on Thursday night.

The Royals came to Texas to open a four-game weekend series on the heels of a 7-5 home win over the Los Angeles Angels that snapped a four-game losing streak. They're 4-9 since the All-Star break, haven't won consecutive games since June 29-30, and have fallen nine games behind first-place Cleveland in the AL Central.
