ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Chris Iannetta hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning Sunday, lifting the Los Angeles Angels over the Kansas City Royals 4-3.

Reliever Tim Collins (0-3) retired the first batter in the eighth before Iannetta lined a drive into the lower seats in the left-field corner for his fifth homer of the season and second of the series.

Michael Kohn (2-1) pitched a scoreless inning. Ernesto Frieri got three outs for his sixth save, retiring Alcides Escobar on a popup with a runner on third.
