Major League Baseball: Royals 3, Twins 1
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Eduardo Escobar had three hits and drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh to support Jose Berrios strong outing as the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 3-1 on Monday night.
Escobar plated Joe Mauer with a seventh-inning single as Minnesota took advantage of Kansas Citys struggling bullpen to win its fifth straight game.
Berrios (9-7), elected to his first All-Star game a day earlier, allowed one run on six hits in seven innings. He struck out eight while throwing a season-high 111 pitches.
