Late Heroics Lift Royals Past Angels

By Jayson Henderson

The Kansas City Royals secured a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Down by one run in the ninth inning, Adam Frazier’s two-run homer sealed the win, marking their ninth comeback in 40 games. With a 24-16 record, the Royals are eight games over .500 for the first time since 2016. Frazier’s clutch hit, his first home run this season, highlighted the team’s resilience. Pitcher Alec Marsh, returning from the injured list, impressed with 5 1/3 innings and seven strikeouts. Relievers Chris Stratton and John Schreiber shut down the Angels to secure the win. MJ Melendez’s diving catch further bolstered the team’s effort. The Royals’ knack for late-game heroics and solid pitching continues to drive their success this season.
