The Royals dominance in the A.L. Central continued last night with a 4-3 win over the Twins. Joe Randa blasted a three-run homer and Raul Ibanez drove in a run with a double in the third inning for Kansas City’s only runs. It proved to be enough, as the Twins rallied for three runs before falling short. Starter Runelvys Hernandez improved to 4-0 despite walking six batters. Hernandez leads all American League hurlers with a 1.10 ERA. Relievers Jason Grimsley and Mike MacDougal also had control issues, walking two apiece. MacDougal worked around his imperfections to notch his Major League-leading eight save of the season. The Royals are now 15-3 and own a four-game lead over the White Sox in the A.L. Central.
