Royals open series with 6-1 win over Twins

Kansas City got another solid start from Danny Duffy, Alcides Escobar drove in four runs, and the Royals took the series opener from the Minnesota Twins 6-1 Monday night. 

After starting the game by striking out Brian Dozier and surrendering a hit to Kurt Suzuki, Duffy retired 14 straight batters.  By the time he began to struggle with his control in the 6th, the Royals offense had the game in hand.  Escobar put KC on the board in the second with a two-run double, scoring Salvodar Perez and Mike Moustakas. Omar Infante singled in Alex Gordon in the fourth to extend the Royals lead. After the Twins got a run back in the bottom of the fifth, Perez homered in the top of the 6th to put Kansas City back up by three.  Escobar capped the Royals scoring in the top of the eighth, doubling in Infante and Moustakas.

Moustakas says all phases were working.

Kansas City and Minnesota continues their series Tuesday with James Shields squaring off against the Twins' Ricky Nolasco.  Pregame at 6:30, first pitch at 7:10 on 14 KVOE.
