Blanton has rough 1st inning as Royals lose to Twins, 5-3

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Joe Blanton had a bad first inning and that was enough to doom the Kansas City Royals

Blanton gave up two runs on his first four pitches and three overall in the first inning, and the Royals went on to a 5-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night.

Brian Dozier singled on Blanton's first pitch and Joe Mauer, who had his first four-hit game in nearly two years, homered on a 2-0 pitch.
