Hey this is  a nice surprise for the Kansas City Royals to win a game and climb the leader board in the American League Central even if it was just their second game. The Royals are one game back behind the Tigers and with the win today are playing .500 ball. K.C. beat the Angels today and for six innings were able to hold the Angels scoreless. The Royals got on the board early, scoring two runs in the first inning and added another run in the second when Lorenzo Cain hit a sac fly to right field and Humberto Quintero scored making it 3-0 Royals.

Kansas City would add another run in the fifth when Eric Hosmer hit a home run giving them a 4-0 lead. The Royals were having fun today and you could tell when Mike Moustakas hit a home run in the sixth making it 5-0 Royals. The Angles would try to mount some offense in the seventh inning when Bobby Abreu hit a deep double driving home Kendrys Morales and sending Tori Hunter to third.  The Angels would tack on another run when Vernon Wells grounded out to third and Hunter scored making it 5-2 Royals.

The Royals would get their final run of the game on a throwing error by Angels catcher Bobby Wilson which allowed Chris Getz to score. The Angels could only tack on one more run in the ninth and fell short in mounting any kind of a come back, The Royals would get the win and that was enough to move them into second place in the A.L. Central even if it is only their second game it is nice to see the Royals out of the basement.
