ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani hit the longest homer of his major league career in the first inning, and the surging Los Angeles Angels pounded five homers in an 8-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals.

Max Stassi, José Iglesias and Justin Upton also homered for Los Angeles off Kansas City starter Kris Bubic. Taylor Ward added a two-run shot in the eighth.

Andrew Heaney allowed six hits and a run while pitching into the seventh inning of the Angels' 10th win in 15 games.

Ohtani's 17th homer of the season was a 470-foot shot deep into the outfield bleachers off Bubic.
