Ryan O’Hearn’s RBI double in the eighth and Brett Phillips sacrifice fly in the ninth rallied the Royals to a 4-3 win over the Minnesota Twins on the final day of the season for Kansas City. It also marked the end of Ned Yost’s ten-year managerial run for the Royals who finish the 2019 season with 103 losses.Down 3-0 in the bottom of the first, Jorge Soler hit his 48th homer of the year, the most ever in MLB history for a Cuban-born player in one season. Soler also finishes as the American League’s top home run hitter and third in MLB behind Mets rookie Pete Alonso’s 53 and Eugenio Suarez’ 49 of the Reds.
