Three-run seventh helps Angels down Royals, complete sweep
Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - J.B. Shuck and Erick Aybar smacked consecutive RBI singles as part of a three-run seventh inning that helped the streaking LA Angels of Anaheim complete a four-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals with a 5-2 victory Sunday at Kauffman Stadium.
Josh Hamilton started the seventh with a solo shot, while Chris Iannetta and Shuck each added a run-scoring single in the eighth to lift the red-hot Angels to their season-high eighth straight victory.
Jerome Williams (4-1) allowed just two runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings to earn the victory. Ernesto Frieri survived a shaky ninth to secure his 10th save of the season.
David Lough recorded the lone RBI for the Royals, who lost five straight and nine of their last 10 overall.
Wade Davis (3-4) was charged for three runs on six hits and two walks over 6 1/3 frames to absorb the loss.
