KANSAS CITY, Mo. Justin Holiday Jersey . -- Omar Infante told Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar that on a muggy night at Kauffman Stadium, with a stiff breeze blowing out to left field, any ball hit solidly would clear the fence. Infante never predicted that hed hit one with the bases loaded. The veteran capped a seven-run inning with his first career grand slam Friday, and Kansas City held on to beat the Los Angeles Angels 8-6 on a rough night for starting pitchers. "There was a lot of wind," Infante said. "I just wanted to make contact, do something." The grand slam in the third gave the Royals a 7-2 lead, and they tacked on one more run the next inning. Then, after starter Jason Vargas gave up four runs in the fifth, the Kansas City bullpen twirled five scoreless innings to preserve the victory. Michael Mariot (1-0) picked up his first career win with 1 1-3 innings of relief, and Greg Holland earned his 23rd save by tossing a perfect ninth. "We just knew that with Vargas going four innings, we needed to piece it together," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Mariot did a phenomenal job." Lorenzo Cain, Billy Butler and Alex Gordon each drove in a run for Kansas City, which ended the Angels six-game winning streak after limping into the series having lost six of seven. Vargas and Angels counterpart Matt Shoemaker (5-2) combined to give up 14 runs on 20 hits -- four of them home runs -- and neither got an out in the fifth. "It was definitely not fun," Shoemaker said. "Its going to make me tougher, not that I wasnt, but you learn from it. The third inning was a long inning. There were a lot of runs." C.J. Cron hit two homers for Los Angeles, and Mike Trout sent a shot to centre in the first inning that cleared the fence, four rows of seats and a walkway before landing in a fountain. "I squared it up. I definitely barrelled it," Trout said. "I was trying to put a good swing on it and got a pitch I could hit. Im always looking fastball and reacted. I got a heater." Trouts mammoth drive only counted for one run, though. It was going to take more than that to win, with the ball carrying so well. Cron added a homer to left with two outs in the second inning, but Kansas City quickly erased its two-run deficit in the third by matching its biggest inning of the season. The seven-run outburst against Shoemaker began with a double by Escobar, who added a single later in the inning. Jarrod Dyson, Cain and Eric Hosmer hit singles, Butler walked, Gordon hit a sacrifice fly and Salvador Perez added another base hit. By that point, the Royals had pulled ahead 3-2 and the bases were loaded for Infante, who hit a high fly to left field that carried just over the wall and landed in the bullpen. His first career grand slam came in his 1,268th game. "The ball was really carrying tonight," Yost said. "I knew he hit it good." Butler added an RBI single in the fourth to make it 8-2. Shoemaker finished the inning but did not emerge for the fifth after allowing eight runs on 11 hits and a walk. The rookie was 5-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his previous seven starts. Vargas nearly squandered the big cushion when Cron hit a two-run shot in the fifth for his first career multihomer game. David Freese, Chris Iannetta and Collin Cowgill joined Trout in stringing together enough hits to eventually put up four runs. Howie Kendrick nearly tied the game with a shot to the wall in right, but Cain caught it on a gallop at the warning track to end the inning and preserve the Royals 8-6 lead. Despite some hiccups, their bullpen kept the Angels off the board the rest of the way. "We had a lot of great opportunities. We could have easily put our heads down when it was 8-2, but we fought back," Trout said. "We just fell short." NOTES: The Angels traded RHP Ernesto Frieri to Pittsburgh for RHP Jason Grilli before the game. "Were trying to get a bullpen with some chemistry," manager Mike Scioscia said. ... The Angels optioned INF Efren Navarro to Triple-A Salt Lake and recalled RHP Michael Kohn after the game. ... Royals RHP Yordano Ventura faces Angels LHP Hector Santiago on Saturday. Kris Dunn Jersey . Once again, the third baseman delivered in a big spot. Ramirez kept up his torrid hitting with a two-run homer to help back Wily Peraltas solid start, and the Brewers extended their winning streak to seven with a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Bach is in Rome for the European Olympic Committees general assembly and meetings with Pope Francis. He also visited with Italian Premier Enrico Letta. "The prime minister appeared to be interested in a bid from Italy for 24, because he has realized that the games can serve as a catalyst for development for a city and a country," Bach told The Associated Press on Saturday.The Winnipeg Jets are on a roll as they host the slumping St. Louis Blues at the MTS Centre tonight. Viewers in the Jets region can watch the game on TSN Jets at 6:30pm ct/7:30pm et. The game is also available on TSN Radio 1290 in Winnipeg at 7pm ct. On Saturday, Winnipeg won for the second time in three games, as Mark Scheifele scored 1:04 into overtime to give the Jets a 2-1 decision over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Blake Wheeler had the Jets regulation goal before later setting up Scheifeles game-winner to help Winnipeg complete a successful six-game road trip with a 4-2-0 record. "3-3 would not have felt very good," Jets head coach Claude Noel said. "4-2 is a lot more comforting for us. It would have been disappointing to go home 3-3." Al Montoya did his part between the pipes for Winnipeg, turning aside 28-of-29 shots in the triumph. "I thought Montoya played really strong," Noel said. "He battled back hard." Winnipeg, though, has lost three in a row on home ice and will be trying to avoid their first four-game losing streak at MTS Centre since Feb.7-17 of last season. St. Louis suffered a rare home loss on Sunday, as it fell behind early in a 5-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at Scottrade Center. Jaden Schwartz and Patrik Berglund tallied for the Blues, who have dropped three of four. Jaroslav Halak was pulled after giving up three goals on eight shots in 7 1/2 minutes of action.

Over the past four games St. Louis, which dropped to 12-2-2 at home on the year, has been outscored 9-1 in the first period, 9-0 in the three losses. "I think its the same for every game," head coach Ken Hitchcock said. "When you dont have a mindset of checking, then that affects your competitive level, races for pucks, puck battles, 50-50 pucks. When your mindset is something other than checking to start with, that affects everything. Its been the same. We went through this last year, and it was, what, a month we went through this where we had to change our attitude towards what was important. "Well score lots if we check better. Well get way more offensive-zone time. Were just chasing the game. Were chasing the game because were not starting with the puck, were not keeping the puck, were not determined when were being checked, and were not determined when were checking, so you play slow. We look slow and then we speed up as the game goes on. We got more competitive as the game went on, but were allowing the other team to dictate the checking tempo and it affects every part of our game." St. Louis, though, has still scored two or more goals on home ice in 22 straight games dating to last season. The Blues are 4-0-1 in the last five matchups with the Jets and won 3-2 in the most recent one Oct. 29.
