Angels Vs. Royals Final Score: Kansas City Evens Series With 4-1 Win

The Los Angeles Angels are suffering from uneven play as of late. When they're hitting, they look unstoppable. When they're unable to score runs in bunches -- like in Tuesday night's 4-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals -- they don't look very impressive at all.

Lorenzo Cain hit a two-run homer off of Garrett Richards in the first inning to stake the Royals to an early lead. Mark Trumbo hit an RBI single in the bottom of the first to cut the lead in half, but RBIs from Alex Gordon and Alcides Escobar in the top of the second put the game out of reach for good.

Royals starter Will Smith held the Angels to just two hits and four walks in seven innings of work and the Angels only recorded four hits in the game, none of them for extra bases.

The Angels are now tied with the Oakland Athletics (who have now won six in a row) for second place in the American League West. They need a series win on getaway day Wednesday.
