OC Register: Angels club three straight homers in comeback win over Royals

Recommended Posts

ANAHEIM ― As an offensive strategy, putting the ball in play against Kansas City Royals pitcher Jordan Lyles wasn’t getting the job done for the Angels on Sunday afternoon.

Putting the ball over the fence worked, but only in the sixth inning. That was all it took to spur a come-from-behind, 4-3 win over the Royals before an announced crowd of 36,016 at Angel Stadium.

Taylor Ward, Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani all hit solo home runs in consecutive at-bats against Lyles, turning a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 lead. For Ward, it was his third home run of the season and his first since April 3. For Trout and Ohtani, each home run was their fifth.

The last time the Angels hit three consecutive home runs was June 8, 2019, when Tommy La Stella, Trout, and Ohtani did the deed against the Seattle Mariners.

The Angels (11-11) won two of three games against Kansas City (5-17) to kick off a seven-game homestand. They welcome the Oakland A’s (4-18) for four games beginning Monday.

Austin Warren (1-0) pitched 1 1/3 innings in relief of starter Reid Detmers to pick up the win. Detmers allowed two runs on seven hits in 5 ⅔ innings, walking one batter and striking out six. He allowed a solo home run to MJ Melendez in the first inning and another to Vinnie Pasquantino in the sixth.

Matt Moore and Carlos Estevez followed Warren with one scoreless inning apiece. Estevez was credited with his third save of the season.

Lyles (0-4) allowed only one hit and one run in the first five innings. Ward walked to lead off the game, went to third base on a ground-rule double by Trout, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Ohtani to tie the game 1-1.

Trout finished 3 for 4 and Ohtani went 2 for 3. Ward’s home run and a single by Zach Neto accounted for the Angels’ other hits.
