Twins Vs. Royals Final Score: Minnesota Picks Up 4-2 Win

The Minnesota Twins had a three-game winning streak snapped in game two of their series against the Kansas City Royals, but got revenge by taking the three-game set two games to one with a 4-2 victory on Wednesday. Aside from a homerun in the first inning, the Royals were unable to mount any kind of offense.

As noted, Y Betancourt had a homerun in the first inning to take a 2-1 lead, scoring Alex Gordon in the process. Kansas City didn't really have anything other than that. Ryan Doumit doubled to right field to score Jamey Carroll in the first inning, but it wasn't until the fifth inning that they took the lead.

Justin Morneau singled to left center scoring Carroll in the fifth, and then Carroll had his part in a third run of the day when he singled to left center, scoring Ben Revere in the seventh. Nick Blackburn picked up his second win of the season with five innings pitched. He gave up two runs and five hits. Luis Mendoza was given the loss for the Royals.

Next, the Twins will return home for nine games, with a three-game set against the Chicago Cubs.
