    Adrian Beltre hit his 399th career home run, newcomer Thomas Field hit his first and the Texas Rangers beat the weary Kansas City Royals 8-2 Monday night.

    Prince Fielder also homered for the Rangers to back Colby Lewis (3-2), who beat the Royals for the first time since 2003 by limiting them to one run and three hits over seven innings. The right-hander struck out five and walked two.

    The defending AL champion Royals didn't arrive in Texas until about 5:45 a.m. Monday after their 10-inning, rain-delayed victory at Detroit that ended after midnight.

    Danny Duffy (2-2), who traveled ahead of his teammates, matched his career high with six walks while pitching only 3 2-3 innings. He struck out four while giving up six runs and five hits.
