TWINS 9, ROYALS 6
Tyler Austin hit one of Minnesota’s four home runs and made a spectacular catch while flipping into the dugout down the first-base line as Minnesota avoided a four-game sweep.
Max Kepler, Johnny Field and Jorge Polanco also went deep for the Twins, who had a season-high 18 hits.
Kyle Gibson (8-13) lasted into the seventh and ended a four-start losing streak despite giving up five runs and 11 hits.
Jerry Vasto (0-1) allowed one run on three hits to take the loss in relief.
