Kansas City Royals

Cruz homers twice; Twins beat Royals 4-1

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Nelson Cruz homered twice, continuing his climb up the all-time leaderboard, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 4-1 on Monday night.

Cruz supplied all the offense the Twins needed while continuing his assault on Kansas City pitching and the record books.

The 40-year-old slugger led off the fourth inning with a line drive that hit the facing of the second deck in left field.

Royals: C Salvador Perez returned to the lineup after missing a game with blurry vision in his left eye.

Royals: Kansas City returns home for two games against Cincinnati, which had its weekend series postponed after a player tested positive for COVID-19.

RHP Brad Keller (2-0, 0.00 ERA) is slated to start Tuesday's game for Kansas City.
