Series 8 Royals terrorized by Twins! Twins win big against division leading Kansas City Royals. In what looked to be a disaster for Twins' fans in the top of the 1st turned out to be a miracle in the bottom inning as the Twins blasted in 5 runs. Francisco Liriano had to leave the game after just 0.2 innings of work. Grabbing his arm resulted in the yanking of the Twins' ace. However, Pat Neshek, the submariner would do wonders on the K.C. batters going 4.0 innings getting 3 K's and 2 hits. Jason Kubel went 4-5 with a double and 3 RBI's. Michael Cuddyer and Justin Morneau added fuel to the fire with 2 HR's. The Twins will look to take the series hopefully and go up 2 games in a tight race in the AL Central division.
