Hunter Hits Two Homers, Powers Angels Past Royals
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Torii Hunter's second home run, a two-run shot off Joakim Soria in the ninth, powered the Los Angeles Angels to a come-from-behind 10-8 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Monday.
Hunter, who had a solo home run off Everett Teaford in the seventh, drove in the 1,000th run of his career with the long drive that put the Angels on top 9-8. For Soria (3-3), a two-time All-Star, it was his fifth blown save in 12 opportunities and second in two days.
Last year he had three blown saves in 46 opportunities. The Angels added a run on an RBI fielder's choice by Mark Trumbo.
Trumbo and Peter Bourjos hit solo home runs in the eighth off Louis Coleman to bring the Angels to within a run.
