Royals, Angels head to extras in ALDS opener

The Associated Press

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Kansas City Royals and Los Angeles Angels headed to extra innings tied 2-2 in their AL Division Series opener Thursday night.

Chris Iannetta and David Freese homered for the Angels, but the AL West champions stranded seven runners in the final four innings before heading to extras.

Alcides Escobar had an early RBI double for the Royals, and the bullpen repeatedly escaped trouble in Kansas City's first game since that spectacular, 12-inning comeback victory over Oakland in the wild-card playoff Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium.

Game 2 in the best-of-five series is Friday night at the Big A, with Angels 16-game winner Matt Shoemaker taking on fellow rookie Yordano Ventura.
