KANSAS CITY, Mo. Matt Cassel Jersey . —Billy Butler finally
got his 100th home run. It came in another Kansas City Royals loss. Butler,
Mike Moustakas and Jeff Francoeur homered for the Royals, but the Los Angeles
Angels rallied for a 9-7 victory on Friday night. Pinch hitter Kendrys Morales
hit a two-run homer during an eighth-inning rally that sent the Los Angeles
Angels over the Kansas City Royals 9-7. Four hours before the game, a man shot
and wounded a female parking lot employee between the stadiums that are home to
the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals before killing himself, police said. The pair
were both in their 40s and knew each other, but police did not elaborate on
their relationship. The woman was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
There was no mention of the shooting over the public address system at Kauffman
Stadium. Butler and Moustakas homered in the second to give the Royals a 2-0
led. Butlers home run, which caromed off a billboard at the top of the Royals
bullpen, was the 100th of his career. He had been stuck on 99 since Aug. 11,
going 93 at-bats without a homer. Two batters later Moustakas hit his 20th home
run. “Im glad I got it at home, to do it in front of the home crowd and the
reception was great,” Butler said. “Its a great feeling. I got a pitch to drive
and put a good swing on it.” Butler received a nice ovation and came out of the
dugout to tip his cap. “That was good to see,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.
“Thats a milestone to get behind you.” What was not good for Yost to see was his
bullpen give up a lead for the second straight game. The Angels torched the
Royals relievers for four runs, one day after the Minnesota Twins scored three
runs the final three innings off the Kansas City bullpen to rally for a 4-3
victory. Morales homered on the first pitch from Tim Collins (5-3) with
Mark Trumbo aboard to make it 7-all. Collins threw 11 pitches, faced four
batters and retired none, allowing two singles and hitting Albert Pujols on an
0-2 count. “We knew Morales is a much, much better left-handed hitter than
right-handed hitter and we could see him in the dugout there getting ready so we
had Timmy (Collins) ready,” Yost said. “A guy coming off the bench is going to
be hunting a fastball. Timmy threw him a fastball and it was definitely in a
good spot and he hit it a long way.” Jeremy Jeffress replaced Collins and walked
Torii Hunter on five pitches with the bases loaded to force home Mike Trout with
the go-ahead run. Hunter is hitting .431 with 15 RBIs in his past 16 games.
Jordan Walden (3-2), the fourth of six Angels pitchers, picked up the victory,
although he threw only two pitches. Ernesto Frieri got his 19th save in 21
opportunities. The Royals took advantage of second baseman Howie Kendricks error
to score three unearned runs in the sixth. Francoeur, who was hitting just .159
in his previous 20 games, hit a two-run homer with two out. Moustakas sacrifice
fly scored the first run of the inning. Angels starter C.J. Wilson left with a
4-3 lead in the sixth and got a no-decision. Royals starter Bruce Chen exited
with a 6-4 lead in the seventh, but the bullpen failed to maintain it. The
Angels scored four times in the fourth, two on Kendricks double and two on
Alberto Callaspos two-out single. The Angels scored an unearned run in the ninth
after centre fielder Jason Bourgeois error. Royals catcher Salvador Perez went
0-for-4, snapping his 17-game hitting streak, which was the longest active
streak in the majors. NOTES: Angels star Albert Pujols returned to first base
for the first time since injuring his right leg on Aug. 22 at Boston. He missed
four games after the injury and started the next 16 games as the DH before
playing first against the Royals. “I think he feels comfortable with it and our
medical staff feels comfortable with it,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “I
think hes much more comfortable when he can play the field and contribute to the
team.” ... Hunter batted cleanup for just the 16th time this season. He had been
primarily hitting second. ... RHP Zack Greinke, who won the 2009 Cy Young Award
while with the Royals, will start Saturday for the Angels. RHP Jeremy Guthrie,
who is 4-0 with a 1.70 ERA in his past seven starts, will start for the Royals.

McHale saved a set point, then used a late service break to pull out a 7-6 (5),
7-5 win over Jarmila Gajdosova in the first-round of the Mercury Insurance Open
on Tuesday. McHale, the No. 5 seed, struggled against the Australian, and both
players held serve late into each set. But McHale took advantage of Gajdosovas
mistakes to claim the tiebreak and hit some late winners to claim the victory.
“It wasnt easy out there,” said McHale, who pulled out of Stanford last week
with a sinus infection. “Jarmila played really well, especially served really
well. I was just happy to be able to pull that one out.” Eighth-seeded Chanelle
Scheepers beat hometown favourite CoCo Vandeweghe 6-2, 7-6 (4) in the night
match. Vandeweghe, from nearby Rancho Santa Fe, was coming off a loss to Serena
Williams at Stanford on Sunday. The 20-year-old, who received a wild card for
this event, didnt come close to duplicating last weeks effort. Scheepers swept
through the first set as a frustrated Vandeweghe had trouble with her
groundstrokes and double-faulted to give the South African an early break. “I
played every ball and made her work hard to win the points,” Scheepers said.
“She was hitting some really big balls and I was trying to keep the points going
and make her hit some extra balls.” With the score tied at 5 in the second set,
the players traded service breaks to force a tiebreak. Scheepers ggot a
mini-break to start the tiebreak then broke again for a 5-4 lead and served out
the match when Vandeweghe hit a backhand long. Dexter McCluster Jersey. Earlier, No. 7 seed
Yanina Wickmayer of Belgium dropped the first set 7-6 (6) to qualifier Yung-Jan
Chan of Taiwan before retiring with a lower back injury. The 20-year-old McHale
was trailing 5-4 in the second set when she saved a set point with an ace.
McHale then used the first service break to take a 6-5 lead. McHale, playing in
her first tournament since losing in the third round at Wimbledon, advanced on
her first match point when Gajdosova hit a backhand into the net. “I just kept
fighting,” McHale said. “All of the games were close and she was playing really
well, so it was tough.” The players were on serve in the first set before
Gajdosova broke through in the 11th game with two great service returns for
winners. But McHale broke right back to force the tiebreak. Trailing 5-4 in the
tiebreak, Gajdosova dumped an easy approach shot into the net, and McHale
finished off the set two points later when Gajdosova hit a forehand into the
net. In other first-round matches, American Vania King defeated Kai-Chen Chang
of Taiwan 6-1, 6-4; Marina Erakovic of New Zealand beat Anne Keothavong of Great
Britain 6-4, 6-0; Heather Watson of Great Britain ousted Eleni Daniilidou of
Greece 6-3, 6-3; and Melinda Czink of Hungary beat qualifier Sesil Karatantcheva
of Kazakhstan 6-2, 4-6, 7-5. ’ ’ ’
