Rosario Slugs Twins to 8-5 Win
The Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals, 8-5, at Kauffman Stadium. The win was largely due to the efforts of left fielder Eddie Rosario, who captured player of the game honors. He was 2 for 5 with 2 home runs, while adding 5 RBI and scoring twice. The Twins go to 87-74, putting them second in the American League Central Division.

Rosario came through with some timely hitting for Minnesota. With the score 0-0 in the top of the third and one down, Rosario hit a 1-2 cutter for a 3-run home run. His 36th home run of the season made it 3-0, Minnesota.

"I was able to barrel up some pitches," said Rosario.
