Twins Bang Out 11-7 Win Versus Kansas City
The Minnesota Twins dealt the Kansas City Royals a 11-7 loss at Target Field. Jesús Salas was the star on offense. He went 2 for 5 with 2 home runs. He drove in 4 runs and scored twice. Kevin Faulkner, credited with the win, is now 2-0. He allowed 3 runs on 4 hits in 0.2 innings. Their 51-40 record puts the Twins third in the American League Central Division.

Had Mike Hartman not delivered a key base hit in the bottom of the seventh, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and runners on 1st and 2nd, Hartman hit a run-scoring single. That made the score 8-7, in favor of the Twins.

"One win at a time, one game at a time. We try not to get too far ahead of ourselves," Hartman told the Minnesota Daily.
