ARLINGTON, Texas When it comes to working down on the farm, well, the Rangers are a bunch of city slickers compared to the Kansas City Royals. At least that was the result of Saturday's Farm and Ranch Day at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The Royals bested the Rangers in both cow milking and egg tossing before taking each other on in baseball. Rangers closer Joe Nathan was the impartial judge of both contests, while Rangers public address announcer Chuck Morgan served as the on-field emcee. First the team of Rangers pitchers Derek Holland and Justin Grimm challenged Royals infielders Chris Getz and Elliott Johnson in the egg toss. Backing up after each successful toss, both teams reached the edge of the tarp laid down along the third base foul territory. No doubt thanks to several of their teammates egging them on. Ultimately, Holland couldn't handle one long toss from Grimm and the yolk was on him. Then the competition moved to the cow milking where Rangers reliever Robbie Ross took on Royals catcher George Kottaras. It was a bad sign when Ross' bovine partner kicked the milk pail over just before the competition began. When the contest started, it was no contest. Kottaras used the soft hands of a catcher to out-milk Ross. That's the second cow-milking loss in two years for Ross, who lost to the Angels' Kole Calhoun in Anaheim last season. Obviously, Ross is more familiar working in a bullpen, not a cowpen. Follow Keith Whitmire on Twitter: @Keith_Whitmire
