Angels pounce on KC's bullpen in 9-6 win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Maicer Izturis had four RBIs and Los Angeles scored five runs in the eighth inning against Kansas City's beleaguered bullpen, helping the Angels beat the Royals 9-6 Wednesday night to complete an improbable 3-game sweep.

Izturis hit a two-run homer off Royals starter Brian Bannister and Howie Kendrick added a solo shot off him in the seventh. Kendry Morales had two hits to extend his career-high hitting streak and the AL West-leading Angels had 15 hits - 40 in the 3-game series - to move a season-high 17 games over .500.
