ANAHEIM, Calif. Cheap Coyotes Jerseys . -- With all the power they possess in the middle of their lineup, the Los Angeles Angels dont usually need home runs from Chris Iannetta.Yet thats what they got in a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals.The veteran catcher hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning Sunday to lift the Angels to a 4-3 victory. He also connected Friday night for their first run in a win.Iannettas latest go-ahead drive sailed into the lower seats in the left-field corner."I didnt know if it was going to go out or not. I was just hoping it would stay fair. Im glad it did," he said.Reliever Tim Collins (0-3) retired the first batter in the eighth before Iannetta hit his fifth homer of the season."I just missed. I was trying to go away," Collins said. "You cant miss your spots in those situations. Thats what I did, and thats what happens."Michael Kohn (2-1) pitched a scoreless inning. Ernesto Frieri got three outs for his sixth save, retiring Alcides Escobar on a popup with a runner on third.Garrett Richards, trying to preserve some arms in the Angels bullpen following Saturday nights 13-inning 7-4 loss, pitched seven innings and allowed three runs on five hits. He struck out seven and walked two."I was prepared to go back out for the eighth, with the bullpen being taxed from last night," Richards said. "But I always try to go deep in game because I know that if I do, Im doing my job. Im going as hard as I can for as long as I can."Royals starter Jason Vargas was charged with a run and three hits over 6 1-3 innings in his return to Angel Stadium, and was lifted after 109 pitches with a 3-0 lead.Kelvin Herrera took over with a runner at first and gave up a single by No. 9 hitter Collin Cowgill on his first pitch. Mike Trout hit an RBI double with one out, Albert Pujols was hit by an 0-2 pitch and David Freese had a tying, two-run single.Pujols tried to score the go-ahead run from second on C.J. Crons sharp single, but Lorenzo Cain -- starting in right field for the first time this season after 28 starts in centre -- threw him out at the plate.Vargas struck out six and tied a career high with five walks. This was the sixth time in 165 big league starts that the 31-year-old left-hander has walked as many as five batters, and the first time since July 20, 2011, with Seattle."I think he was being extra careful with Pujols and Trout -- and Howie Kendricks also tough," manager Ned Yost said. "Thats a powerful lineup over there. So either he was going to make his pitch, or he wasnt going to make a mistake to those guys and let them drive it out of the ballpark."Vargas walked his first batter in the second, third and fourth innings after giving up a leadoff single in the first, but the Angels couldnt capitalize. He walked his first two batters in the third before retiring Pujols on a double-play grounder to shortstop and striking out Freese."It was just one of those games where I had to battle through some innings," Vargas said. "I was just missing and wasnt able to get ahead on some of those guys, but I was fortunate to get back into some counts later in the inning and ended up getting out of it."The Royals, who scored first in all three games of the series, took a 3-0 lead in the second. Pedro Ciriaco hit a bloop double that scored Jimmy Paredes, who singled and advanced on Richards first balk in 291 1-3 career innings to that point.Jarrod Dyson reached on a fielding error by Gold Glove shortstop Erick Aybar, and Eric Hosmer followed with a sacrifice fly before Alex Gordon capped the rally with an RBI single.Richards retired his next 11 batters, striking out the side on 11 pitches in the fifth."Other than the third inning, it was good," Richards said.Vargas was 9-8 with a 4.02 ERA in 24 starts with the Angels last season after four years with Seattle. He signed a four-year, $32 million contract with Kansas City on Nov. 21.NOTES: LF Cowgill made two sliding catches in foul territory, one on Hosmers sacrifice fly. ... The Angels optioned RHP Matt Shoemaker to Triple-A Salt Lake and selected six-year veteran LHP Wade LeBlanc to the major league roster. LeBlanc, who signed a minor league contract in November as a free agent, was 5-1 with a 3.69 ERA with Salt Lake. He had a combined 20-32 record and 4.51 ERA in 96 big league appearances with the Padres, Marlins and Astros, including 68 starts. ... The Royals recalled RHP Michael Mariot from Triple-A Omaha and optioned C Francisco Pena to the minor league team. Pena is the son of former Royals manager and current Yankees bench coach Tony Pena.         Clayton Keller Jersey .com) - The Minnesota Twins made it official on Wednesday,  announcing  the signing  of outfielder Torii  Hunter to a one-year contract. Kyle Turris Jersey . -- Canadian Erik Bedard pitched into the fifth inning in his bid to win a spot in Tampa Bays rotation, helping the Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 on Saturday.Philadelphia,  PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Conley poured in a career-high 36 points  and  the  Memphis  Grizzlies  overcame  an  18-point  deficit  in  the fourth quarter to defeat the lowly Philadelphia 76ers, 120-115, on Saturday. Memphis, which won its fourth straight game, came out sluggish after winning a double-overtime  contest  in Charlotte on  Friday and arriving in Philadelphia early Saturday morning. The Grizzlies can thank Conley, who scored 16 points in the fourth quarter and tied the game with a desperation heave as the buzzer sounded in regulation. Zach  Randolph  contributed 24 points and  11 rebounds, while Courtney Lee and Marc Gasol added 19 and 18 points, respectively, in the win. A night after tying a season-low point total in an 88-70 loss to Brooklyn, the Sixers  made  one field goal  over the final 6:37  of the fourth quarter, then converted just one basket in the extra session. Michael  Carter-Williams  was a  bright  spot  for Philadelphia,  although  he committed  three  of his teams  six turnovers in the fourth-quarter collapse. Carter-Williams  registered his fourth career triple-double with 16 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds. Robert  Covington  paced the Sixers with  24 points and Hollis Thompson tied a career high with 21 points in their third straight loss. That  is a  very cruel loss, Sixers  coach Brett Brown said. Ive just seen the end of the game, there are not many regrets. Its a cruel loss for a bunch of young guys that put themselves in a position to get an incredible win. Conley  opened  the overtime period  with a  layup before Randolph converted a three-point play that made it 114-109 less than two minutes in. Covington  then  hit  three free  throws  as  the  only  form of  offense  for Philadelphiaa  over the next two-plus minutes that trimmed the deficit to four, but Conleys 3-pointer with 23. Keith Yandle Jersey. 9 seconds left sealed the win for Memphis. Philadelphia  brought a  12-point advantage  into the  fourth quarter  and led 95-77 with 7:39 to go in regulation after a Tony Wroten layup. Memphis  wouldnt go  away, though,  as Randolph  scored five  straight points before  Courtney Lee  capped a 15-3 run that trimmed the Grizzlies deficit to 98-92 with 4:41 left. Covington  quelled  the surge,  however, with four  consecutive free throws to push the lead back to double digits. Conley brought the pesky Memphis team back within five after a 3-pointer, then Covington hit two more free throws. Nerlens Noel defended the rim at the other end  with a  block of Conley, and  Carter-Williams split a pair of free throws for a 105-97 margin with 1:54 to play. Beno  Udrih and Conley hit back-to-back 3s prior to Carter-Williams offensive foul. Conley followed with a layup to cut the margin to 107-106. After  the Sixers  nearly turned it over again on numerous occasions, Thompson converted two clutch free throws with 4.6 seconds remaining. Out  of a  timeout, Gasol found Conley from  the top of the key and the latter converted a running 3-pointer to send it to overtime. Philadelphia  led 28-21 after  12 minutes and went up by 11 late in the second before the Grizzlies closed to within seven, 50-43, at the half.                                   Game Notes Sixers rookie guard K.J. McDaniels missed the contest with an ankle injury ... Memphis  has won five straight in Philadelphia ... Wroten scored 17 points off the  Philadelphia  bench ...  The Grizzlies made  eight of their  11 3s in the fourth ... Memphis had a 60-40 edge in the paint.        '''
