If Gil Meche could single-handedly save the Kansas City Royals, he probably would. But it's going to take more than one great pitcher to do the trick for the 10-19 club.
Meche (3-1, 2.23 ERA) allowed just two hits in seven innings, retiring 17 straight batters after Vladimir Guerrero's two-run shot in the first and leading the Royals over the Los Angeles Angels, 5-2 Thursday.
Opposing pitcher Jered Weaver (1-3, 5.12 ERA) matched his career high with nine strikeouts, giving up three runs and seven hits over six innings and losing to KC for the first time in three decisions.
Ross Gload had a bit night - the first four-hit game of his major league career, where he drove in two runs and scored three.
Billy Butler went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
