Royals Slip Past Minnesota, 14-13
A 4-RBI performance from right fielder Matt Kemp, who led the NL in doubles with 49 in 2014, led the Kansas City Royals to a 14-13 win over the Minnesota Twins. Chad James got credit for the win, improving to 2-3. He allowed no runs on 1 hit in 2.2 innings. Kansas City is now 52-69.

The most critical at-bat came in the top of the 15th inning. With two out, Juan Ruíz hit a 0-1 sinker from Jeffery Hoover for a run-scoring single. It put Kansas City in front, 14-13.

Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire said he was disappointed with the loss. "Whenever you score in double digits, you expect to win the game."
