Twins, Brown Deal Royals 4-1 Setback
Johnny Brown never let the Royals get in a groove. The right-hander used his bread and butter, his slider, to pitch the Twins to a 4-1 win. Chris Byrd earned his 19th save in 22 chances. Minnesota is now 44-49, while Kansas City is 53-40.

Brown was effective for Minnesota, seldom allowing the Royals to square up a pitch. The right-hander tossed 107 pitches over 7 innings. He limited Kansas City to just 1 run on 2 hits.

"Johnny's tempo and rhythm were good," said Twins manager . "He was the key to us winning."
