KANSAS CITY -- Royals manager Ned Yost won a challenge in the third inning of Friday night's 8-6 win in the series opener against the Angels.

With two outs in the third, Mike Trout hit a queue shot to Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer. Kansas City starter Jason Vargas scampered over to first to receive Hosmer's throw, but first-base umpire Tim Welke ruled he arrived too late and called Trout safe.

Yost issued a challenge and replay officials in New York overturned Welke's call for the third out of the inning. The Royals struck for seven runs in their half of the third, capped by Omar Infante's grand slam to take a 7-2 lead. Trout and C.J. Cron belted solo shots in the first and second innings, respectively.

The Royals moved to 15-7 on challenges this season.
