Royals Vs. Twins Final Score: Kansas City Defeats Minnesota 7-3

The Kansas City Royals rebounded Saturday night as they defeated the Minnesota Twins 7-3. The Royals received an offensive boost from Lorenzo Cain who drove in three runs, and Alex Gordon contributed with three hits and scored two runs in the win.

The game was close through most of the game, and in the top of the seventh inning the Twins made it a 4-3 game when Jamey Carroll hit a RBI double to close the game. The Royals offense responded in the bottom half of the inning when Can had one of his three RBI's when he doubled to center to knock in Bill Butler to make it a 5-3 the game.

Two more runs were scored in the eighth inning to give the Royals some security and build up their lead to four runs. Reliever Aaron Crow came through over the last two innings by striking out one, but more importantly he did not allow any runs or hits to preserve the win and earn his second save of the season.
