Royals swept by Angels with 6-1 loss

There’s no denying that the Royals’ West Coast trip has gotten off to brutal start. Well, it only got worse on Wednesday night. Despite facing the team with the third-highest ERA in the American League, Kansas City was shutdown in a 6-1 loss — marking the club’s fifth in a row.

In the top of the first, the Royals squandered an excellent opportunity to grab their first lead of the series. Whit Merrifield led off the game with a single to right field, Andrew Benintendi walked, and both moved up a base on an error from Angels pitcher Griffin Canning.
