Leave it to a Hawaiian to help hang 10 on the Central Division champs. Kila Ka’aihue hit two home runs and drove in four runs as the Royals scored 10 runs for the second consecutive game against the Twins with a 10-1 victory on Tuesday night.
Ka’aihue hit a three run homer in the first off Twins’ starter Nick Blackburn, then followed that up with his seventh of the season in the second to lead off that inning. It was his first multi-homer game of his career. Ka’aihue almost made it three homers in the seventh when he banged a shot off the fence, but ended up with a triple.
The Twins have lost five straight since clinching the AL Central.
