ARLINGTON -- Ian Kinsler led off with a home run, Sidney Ponson got his first victory in a year and the Texas Rangers ended their homestand with Ron Washington still their manager after winning 2-1 over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday.

The Rangers took two-of-three from both Minnesota and Kansas
City during the homestand, which began after a miserable road trip
and a meeting of owner Tom Hicks, president Nolan Ryan and general
manager Jon Daniels about the team's direction. Texas (11-18) set a
team record with 18 losses in April, and still has the worst record
in the majors.
