TWINS 8, ROYALS 5
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Brian Dozier hit a two-run homer, going deep for the second straight game to give Minnesota a boost on its way to a win over Kansas City.
Lance Lynn (7-7) recovered from a three-run homer by Salvador Perez in the first inning to win his second straight start for the Twins, who used the bottom third of their lineup to launch rallies in the second and the fourth against Royals starter Burch Smith (0-1).
Mike Moustakas homered twice for the Royals, who have the fewest home runs in MLB, but took the Twins deep five times over the last two games of this series. Kansas City has lost 23 of its past 27 games.
