Miguel Sano hit the go-ahead two-run home run in the fifth inning off Dillon Gee after the Royals used a five-run inning to grab the lead as the Minnesota Twins avoided the series sweep by beating K.C., 7-5. Gee gave up homers to Eduardo Nunez and Brian Dozier the first two batters he faced.
Eric Hosmer hit a two-run double to halt a 2-for-22 slide and the sizzling Salvador Perez tied the game with another double. Omar Infante added a two-out RBI triple and trotted home on Tyler Duffey’s wild pitch.
The Royals return home for a four-game series beginning Thursday against Chicago.
