Diaz, Twins Wallop Royals
Lewin Diaz was instrumental in his team's 10-0 triumph over the Kansas City Royals. The left fielder hit 2 home runs. He drove in 6 runs and scored twice for the Minnesota Twins. Kevin Faulkner got the win, improving to 1-4. He held the Royals to no earned runs on 3 hits over 7.1 innings, while striking out 6 and walking 2. The Royals drop to 15-15 and continue their inconsistent start to the 2024 season.

Diaz in the top of the fifth had a productive at-bat. With the bases loaded and the Twins leading 2-0, he hit a grand slam.

"You can't sugarcoat this one," said Kansas City manager Patrick Harmon. "We got flat-out beat."
