Cruz’s RBI single in 10th inning lifts Twins over Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Even though he was the Twins’ best hitter a year ago, Eddie Rosario doesn’t need to hit to be valuable to the Twins.

He proved it again Tuesday — and then got a critical hit too.

Rosario, the Twins’ MVP a year ago, threw a baserunner out from left field, and scored from first base — on a single — to help support the pitching of Jose Berrios. And after the Kansas City Royals ended Taylor Rogers’ scoreless-inning streak in the unlikeliest way — with an inside-the-park home run — Rosario ended his hitting drought with an RBI single in the ninth inning to tie the score at 4.
