KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Twins encountered a brief roadblock en route to another win over the Royals.
C.J. Cron homered and singled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning, and Minnesota beat Kansas City 5-3 on Saturday after blowing a 3-0 lead in the eighth.
“It was a good team win, for sure,” Cron said. “I just tried to drive the ball somewhere. (Wily Peralta) got me out last night with a slider down. This one was not down, fortunately. But that’s baseball. A foot more to the left and that’s a double play.”
Miguel Sanó and Jake Cave also homered for the Twins. Eddie Rosario’s double to deep right off
