KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani hit a towering homer and Luis Rengifo added a bases-loaded double to break open a close game as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Kansas City Royals 6-0. Max Stassi also homered in the ninth for the Angels. Jose Suarez scattered three hits and a walk over 5 1/3 innings to earn the win, while the Los Angeles bullpen bounced back from a dismal series opener with a solid performance. Angel Zerpa earned the loss for Kansas City, even though he allowed just one earned run before departing in the fifth inning with a right knee injury.
