Twins-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Perhaps a visit from the Minnesota Twins will help the Kansas City Royals move on from a rough end to an overall successful road trip.

The AL leaders can avoid matching a season high with their fourth consecutive loss by beating the Twins for a sixth time in seven games Thursday night.

Kansas City (44-31) won five of the first six on its nine-game trek before being swept at Houston. The Royals totaled six runs and 20 hits in the three losses and blew an early 3-0 lead in Wednesday's 6-5 defeat.
