The Royals dropped into third place last night with a 4-3 loss to the Twins. Kansas city had a 3-0 lead thanks to Joe Randa, Brent Mayne and Ken Harvey who drove in runs in the first, third and fourth innings. But the lead evaporated in the sixth, when Paul Abbott served up a three-run homer to Shannon Stewart to make it 3-3. In the seventh, Stewart burned the Royals again with an RBI single to put the Twins ahead. It proved to be the game-winning hit. Levine was charged with the loss. The loss dropped Kansas City from a first-place tie with the White Sox to third place. The Sox have a one-half game lead over the Twins and the Royals trail by a game.
