Angels snap Royals' six-game win streak

MLB.com - Sunday 18th June, 2017

ANAHEIM -- Angels right-hander Alex Meyer matched a career-high with nine strikeouts, and Albert Pujols belted a two-run blast to take sole possession of 10th all-time on the career RBI list, leading the Halos to a 9-0 win over Kansas City on Saturday night at Angel Stadium.

Meyer tossed six shutout innings, relinquishing just two hits and permitting one walk en route to snapping the Royals' season-best six-game win streak. The 6-foot-9 flamethrower earned his first win since May 14.
