KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Jered Weaver allowed one run over seven innings and Vladimir Guerrero hit a two-run single in the eighth inning off Kansas City's beleaguered bullpen, lifting the Los Angeles Angels to a 2-1 victory over the Royals.
Weaver (14-5) kept it close early against Royals fill-in starter Robinson Tejeda, scattering nine hits. Tejeda allowed a hit in 5 1-3 scoreless innings, then had to watch another bullpen meltdown.
The Royals walked eight in three innings - three by Jamey Wright (1-5) - and dodged two jams before Guerrero came through with the run-scoring single in the eighth. Brian Fuentes worked the ninth for his 38th save in 43 chances.
Kansas City had 11 hits, the Angels three.
