Royals Rally and hold on for win over Twins

The Kansas City Royals rallied and held on for a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins Friday night.

 

Trailing 2-0 in the 4th Josh Willingham, the former Twin,  hit a three-run double giving the Royals a lead they would not give up.

Alcides Escobar also drove in two runs with a triple in the 4th.

Escobar also drove in the insurance run in the 8th inning. Greg Holland surrendered two runs in the ninth inning, but managed to secure his 37th save of the season. Danny Duffy (8-10) gave up 3 runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings to get the win. The Royals did widened their lead in the AL Central. They are now 1 1/2 games in front of Detroit after the Tigers lost at home to Seattle Friday night 7-3. The Royals and Twins play again Saturday night. Yordano Ventura gets the start for the Royals and Phil Hughes starts for Minnesota. First pitch is set for 6:10.

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer will have to wait another week before he can start swinging a bat again. Hosmer underwent a CT scan and an X-ray on Thursday at the University of Kansas Medical Center and he was told by doctors to wait another week and be re-evaluated then. 

If you were planning to be at Kauffman Stadium for an afternoon game on Sunday, Aug. 31, you'll have to adjust your schedule. The game against Cleveland, originally scheduled for 1:10 p.m. has been changed to 7:07 p.m. to accommodate a telecast by ESPN2. The Royals announced that the game will remain a Family FunDay. It's also KU Day and University of Kansas fans can purchase a special ticket package and receive a Crimson & Blue KC cap.
