Kila Ka’aihue hit his third home run in two games, but Royals hitters…um, let me say batters, because they didn’t hit much, struck out 15 times in their 4-2 loss to the Twins.

Kyle Davies wasn’t particularly sharp in his six innings where he gave up seven hits and three walks while leaving with the score tied 2-2. Gil Meche, the former starter converted to reliever hung a 3-2 change up to Delmon Young who hit a solo shot down the left field line in the top of the seventh to put the Twins on top. Meche’s record for 2010 falls to 0-5.

Davies let a 2-0 lead slip away in the sixth when he was hit with three singles and a walk. Ka’aihue helped give the Royals a 2-0 lead with a lead off home run in the second and catcher Lucas May singled home Alex Gordon in that inning off Twins starter Scott Baker.
