Andrew Albers came within two outs of becoming the first pitcher since 2002 to throw a complete game shutout Tuesday night in the Twins’ 7-0 win over the Royals. The lefty allowed just four hits to a Kanas City team that had pounded out 16 hits the night before against Minnesota.

The Twins offense spotted their young starter three runs in the top of the first inning with a Brian Dozier solo home run opening the scoring, and Justin Morneau’s two-run shot capping it. Dozier would finish the game 3-4 with three RBI.

The star of the night was undoubtedly Albers, who did not allow a runner in scoring position until the ninth inning. The southpaw threw 104 pitches and was lifted in the ninth inning after allowing a single and a walk.

The Twins and Royals will play the rubber match of their three game series at Kauffman Stadium Wednesday night at 7:10.
