Royals Need Extra Frames to Get Past Angels
Los Angeles (A) wasted a solid 6-inning effort from starting pitcher Jonathan Blanchard, losing to Kansas City, 2-1, at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Alex Reyes picked up the win in relief, improving his record to 7-5. Kevin Ziomek was tagged with the loss. José Estrada recorded his 1st save for Kansas City.

The most important at-bat for Kansas City came in the top of the tenth inning, when left fielder Jonathan Mejía stroked a 1-1 fastball to left-center for a run-scoring double, putting Kansas City up, 2-1.

"It was a test of wills," said Patrick Harmon, the Kansas City skipper. "I'm glad we came out of it with a win."

The Royals now have a record of 71-54.
