ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Billy Butler broke out of a severe slump with five hits and five RBIs, and the Kansas City Royals kept Joe Blanton winless in eight starts this season with an 11-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.
Butler's hit total tied his career high, established on July 27, 2009, at Baltimore. The designated hitter has three games with five or more RBIs in the majors -- including a franchise record-tying seven on April 7 at Philadelphia, when he hit his first career grand slam. He began the day in a 4-for-35 rut with a .228 average and one RBI in 23 at-bats over his previous six games.
Luis Mendoza (1-2) allowed three runs and six hits over six innings, striking out six and walking none as the Royals began a nine-game road trip following a three-game sweep by the New York Yankees. The right-hander was staked to a 10-1 lead and took a three-hitter into the sixth before giving up a pair of runs.
Luke Hochevar pitched three innings for his first sa...

When Josh Hamilton left after six innings of the Angels' 11-4 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Monday, it was not because of the lopsided score. Instead, Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said, Hamilton was "a little lightheaded."
Said Hamilton: "I was not lightheaded. I was just sick."
Hamilton said he has tried to play through an illness for 10 days to two...

OFF DAY - NOTEBOOK
DETROIT -- While the Angels offense as a whole got off to a slow start, there were three in particular who struggled more noticeably than the others. But during the offense's surge in the past few weeks, the same three -- Tim Salmon, Brad Fullmer and Adam Kennedy -- have been a big part of it...

#5 Ervin Santana- (Previously: #2) Santana saw his ERA “balloon” to 2.79 with a couple of mediocre starts...

The Angels, predicted by many before the year to advance to the World Series, were looking to turn their fourth-place season around before a partisan audience. The Royals, predicted by many before the year to play the role of American...
Nobody in the Kansas City Royals' clubhouse seems ready to bail on the season after a lousy week, much less a lousy series against the New York Yankees.
They might have last season, when they were a bunch of wide-eyed youngsters.
But after a 4-2 loss to the Yankees resulted in the first sweep of the Royals this season, the mood inside the home clubhouse Sunday was one of resolve...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Albert Pujols, Howie Kendrick, Josh Hamilton and Mike Trout all homered off Jeremy Guthrie and the Los Angeles Angels handed the shell-shocked right-hander his first loss in a span of 19 starts with a 6-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.
Hamilton, the Angels' right fielder, made his fourth start as a designated hitter after being taken...
Well, so much for the Angels turning things around. Finally owning a three-game winning streak, the Halos ran into a buzzsaw. A buzzsaw with pipe cleaner arms and some pretty wicked stuff.
There really isn't any mystery here. Chris Sale was terrific, the Halos hitters were not. It is something we have seen all too often from a lineup that was supposed to be one of the best...
Though it's only mid-May, few could have guessed Kansas City would have a better record than the Los Angeles Angels, who have a payroll roughly $60 million more than the Royals'.
That may not be the case much longer, though, if Kansas City can't snap out of its funk as it begins a nine-game road trip Monday night against Los Angeles.
The Royals (18-16) have finished...
