The Kansas City Royals dropped an 11-4 decision to the Minnesota Twins in game 2 of a 3 games series at Kaufmann Stadium last night.

Odalis Perez lasted just three innings in taking the loss.  Pitching in the sweltering heat got to the KC starter, giving up 6 runs on 7 hits.

John Buck had three hits and two RBI for the Royals, who have lost four of five.

The rubber match of the three game series is this afternoon.
