Tony Abreu drove in three runs as the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 6-4 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep. Abreu’s three RBIs matched his career high.
Abreu, appearing in his eighth game since his Aug. 8 promotion from Triple-A Omaha, delivered a two-run two-out second inning single, scoring Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain. Salvador Perez, who walked to lead off the inning, scored the first run of the inning on Eric Hosmer’s sacrifice fly.
Abreu’s two-out sixth inning single scored Hosmer, who had doubled, and broke a 4-4 tie.
