Royals out score Twins 5-2

5 Times reaching base by Joe Mauer, the 17th such game in his career. The Kansas City Royals won two out of three each in Minnesota and Detroit over the past week. Minor and Alexander stick out from the bunch with sub-3.00 ERAs, while Maurer has found it hard to adjust after a midseason trade to Kansas City, pairing a 7.02 ERA with a 4.9 BB/9 and 10.3 SO/9 over just 16 2/3 innings so far. He issued a walk but didn't allow any hits or runs.

Eric Hosmer drove in the go-ahead run with his third hit of the game. It was his fourth blown save of the season. Kansas City is 5-1 in Kennedy's last 6 division starts and 2-5 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.
