Sunday Recap: Twins Win, Rox Lose
The Twins beat the Kansas City Royals to close out a four game series in Missouri and the St. Cloud Rox fell to the Willmar Stingers at Joe Faber Field. Here's how it all went down on Sunday.
- The Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 at Kauffman Stadium. Bailey Ober made a spot start for the Twins and took a no-decision with four solid innings of work, allowing just one run on five hits while striking out four.
Luke Farrell, Jorge Alcala, Tyler Duffey, Hansel Robles and Taylor Rogers each threw an inning of shutout relief to steer the ship to victory. Miguel Sano hit a RBI double in the third inning to give the Twins a 1-0 lead, and Trevor Larnach was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the fifth to plate the eventual winning run.
