The Minnesota Twins topped the Kansas City Royals, 8-5, with left fielder Daniel Fields playing a big role. Fields went 2 for 4 with a home run and a walk.

Julián Rivera was credited with the save. He has now successfully converted 38 of 43 save opportunities.

Dave Wilson, who finished 3rd in the AL in triples with 7 in 2016, aided the Minnesota cause with a run-scoring single in the top of the fourth. For the game, the shortstop went 2 for 4 with a double.

"Getting a lot of baserunners and getting some timely hits, it's a good combination," said Wilson.
