Kaleb Cowart helped his team muscle past the Kansas City Royals, 6-5. In the game, the Los Angeles first baseman went 4 for 4 with a home run, a double, 2 singles, and a walk. He drove in 2 runs and scored once. Kyle Funkhouser picked up the win, improving his season record to 15-5. He struck out 6 in 7 innings. Kansas City now has a 12-game losing streak.

Los Angeles took a 6-3 lead on Cowart's 26th double of the season. The run-scoring double, which he hit off Drew Storen in the bottom of the sixth, propelled Los Angeles to the win.

"Everyone's trying too hard," said losing manager Matt Walbeck. "If we learn to relax, we'll be fine."
