Royals Score Late to Upend Twins, 6-5
The Kansas City Royals did just enough to secure a 6-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins at Kauffman Stadium. Nobody did more than designated hitter Arnold Moser, who captured player of the game honors. Matt Lang was credited with the save. He has now successfully converted 2 of 2 save opportunities. The 4th-place Royals have won 4 straight.

Kansas City took a 6-5 lead on António Morales's 13th home run of the season. The 2-run home run came off Minnesota pitcher Jeffery Hoover in the bottom of the eighth.

"It's always a heck of a lot easier to get to sleep after a win," Moser told the Kansas City Times. "I know I'll rest easy tonight."
