Kansas City Royals
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Josh Hamilton started the Angels' comeback when he homered leading off the seventh inning, and Los Angeles beat the Kansas City Royals 5-2 Sunday for its eighth straight win.
The Angels were unable to get into their dugout until about 90 minutes before the game because bees swarmed into it. A beekeeper was summoned to solve the problem.
Jerome Williams (4-1) then allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings for the Angels, on their longest winning streak since taking eight straight from May 22-29 last year. When they play at the Freeway Series rival Dodgers on Monday, they can stretch a winning streak to nine for the first time since August 2004.
Kansas City has lost nine of 10 and 16 of 20, dropping to 21-26. In only three of those 16 losses have the Royals scored more than three runs.

A swarm of bees congregated on the bench in the Kansas City Royals dugout before Sunday's game at Kauffman Stadium. No players were reportedly stung, but the bees allegedly disrupted the Royals batting practice.

WHO ARE REAL ROYALS?
At some point, slumps are no longer slumps: Its simply who you are.
The Royals desperately are hoping thats not the case, though, as they have dropped 15 of 19, including eight of their last nine.
But the team that surged to a 17-10 record to start the season seems a distant memory now.

A very large swarm of bees thought they would take over the Kansas City Royals dugout on Sunday prior to the Royals match up against the Angels. The swarm came in force and was not going to leave the Kauffman Stadium dugout without some sort of a fight. After putting up a little argument with a local beekeeper, the bees moved on and the Royals players were tentatively allowed to...
The Kansas City Royals were a trendy pick to be one of baseball’s surprise teams this year. For a while, that was the case: With a May 1 win over Tampa Bay, Kansas City moved into the American League Central lead.
Since then, the Royals are 6-14 – tied with Houston for the AL’s second-worst record during that span.
Despite the three-week skid, Royals general manager Dayton...
Hey everybody let’s go to the quad, were going streaking!
Ok I don’t think the Angels are going to go Full Monty and run around LA, but at the moment they are streaking around the majors!
Along with the Toronto BlueJays, the Angels had a lot of ink in the offseason for 2 reasons.
Signing Josh Hamilton
Oh and by the way they got some guy names Pujols on the team...
It’s been a frustrating start to the 2013 season to say the
least for Los Angeles Angels left-handed reliever Sean Burnett. The southpaw
exited last night’s contest against the Kansas City Royals after experiencing
tightness in his throwing forearm, according to Robert Falkoff of MLB.com.
Burnett was removed from the game as more of a precautionary
measure, as the...
One of the big reasons the Angels have run off six straight wins over the past seven days has been second-year outfielder Mike Trout, who has accounted for more than one-third of the Halos' offensive production.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- There could be an opportunity for Tyler Lyons to make a case for a permanent place in the St. Louis Cardinals' injury-plagued rotation.
Lyons had a solid debut in his last outing and will face a Kansas City Royals team that is one defeat shy of a franchise-record home losing streak entering Tuesday night's contest.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Yadier Molina homered and drove in four runs to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the slumping Kansas City Royals 6-3 on Monday.
Molina hit a two-run homer in the first, doubled home a run in the third and his sacrifice fly in the fourth scored Pete Kozma.
While the Cardinals own the best road record, 19-9, in the majors, the Royals dropped their ninth...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Facing Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals would not appear to provide the Kansas City Royals with a good opportunity to end their losing streak.
The Cardinals can earn a sixth straight road win in the series by extending the Royals' home skid to nine games Monday.

First base umpire Scott Barry badly missed a call in the eighth inning of Sunday’s Los Angeles Angeles-Kansas City Royals game, giving the Royals an extra out and Mark Trumbo an error. Royals outfielder David Lough hit a routine grounder to first baseman Trumbo, who fielded it cleanly and took it to the bag for [...]
Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia's job was in jeopardy earlier this month, but that's no longer the case.
The focus on a managerial job in Southern California these days is squarely on the Los Angeles Dodgers' Don Mattingly.
