Lorenzo Cain, Yordano Ventura lead Royals to 5-1 win over Twins

Lorenzo Cain delivered three hits and scored two runs, Yordano Ventura matched a career-high with 11 strikeouts, Alcides Escobar sparked a seventh-inning flurry and the Kansas City Royals benefited from a series of defensive miscues by the Minnesota Twins in a 5-1 victory


Alcides Escobar sparks Royals to three-game winning streak, 3-1 victory over Twins

Alcides Escobar bounced at first base as fading Twins reliever Glen Perkins toed the rubber. At the crack of Ben Zobrist’s bat, Escobar gauged the trajectory and velocity of the corresponding hit. Then Escobar put his head down and sprinted, from first to third and homeward, scoring the go-ahead run in the eighth inning of a 3-1 Royals victory.


Royals trounce John Danks, White Sox in 6-4 victory

It is not the misfortune of departing the team’s beloved Kauffman Stadium.
