The Angels look to avoid being swept at home for the first time in 77 series tonight in front of a national audience.
Kansas City Royals at Los Angeles Angels
Kansas City was led by pitcher Bruce Chen starting Saturday’s game with six perfect innings before eventually picking up a 4-2 road victory against the Los Angeles Angels. “I’ll have to get my dictionary out to find a better word than awesome, great, fantastic,” manager Ned Yost said about the start. The Royals have reached the halfway point of the season, going 36-45 through 81 games, after going 35-46 at this point of the year in 2009. Last night’s victory also gave the Royals three straight series victories over the St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago White Sox and Angels. The Royals are going for their first three-game series sweep of the season.
