Jose Berrios was keeping the Royals in relative check. He had given up just one run in the first three innings but then he was bit by the long ball.
Mike Moustakas, Alcides Escobar and Brandon Moss all went deep between the fourth and fifth inning to drive in four runs.
Berrios finished the fifth but didn’t come out for the sixth with five runs and 102 pitches to his name. The nine hits allowed and five walks are both season-highs.
At this very moment, the Twins and Royals have identical records but Minnesota leads in the sixth inning of the nightcap of their doubleheader. It will be up to the Twins’ bullpen to protect a 6-2 lead.
Hector Santiago’s last start was cut short when rain delayed the game in Boston after just two innings. He never came back out after tossing a scoreless first and giving up a two-run homer in the second, which was the only hit he allowed.
Kansas City Royals
Luke Farrell looked like a rookie in his first Major League appearance. He didn’t get thru the third inning, allowing seven hits and five earned runs while walking three. He should feel good that his teammates picked him up and won the game, though.
Mike Moustakas’ homer was his 22nd of the season. He’s slugging .551 as the Royals’ 81st game winds down this evening.
Travis Wood makes his first start of the season after 25 appearances as a relief pitcher. The bullpen gig hasn’t gone well for Wood, who has a 1.81 WHIP and 6.28 ERA in 28.2 innings pitched.
I can’t figure why it should be much better in a more difficult role as a starter.
