KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Kendrys Morales had an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning to lift the Kansas City Royals to a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday night.

Ben Zobrist singled with one out in the 10th, the Royals’ first hit since Eric Hosmer’s RBI single in the first inning. After Hosmer walked, Morales singled against Trevor Gott (2-1) as Kansas City improved to 7-2 in extra-inning games.

Kelvin Herrera (4-2) pitched a perfect 10th to pick up the victory.

Kole Calhoun homered in the eighth off Wade Davis to put the Angels up 3-2.

Angels closer Huston Street, however, could not hold the lead in the ninth. He walked the bases loaded before Alex Rios’ sacrifice fly scored Hosmer to tie the score. Mike Trout made a diving catch of Paulo Orlando’s scorcher to right-center for the third out to preserve the tie.
