The Royals were powerless against the reigning American League Cy Young Award Winner Johan Santana. Kansas City scratched out just one run, falling to Minnesota 3-1.

Santana struck out 11 in seven innings. The only damage Kansas City inflicted was a Esteban German home run that just barely cleared the fence. The win was Santana’s 16th on the year.

Jorge de la Rosa was credited with the loss. He allowed two runs in five innings of work.
