MLB: Kansas City 9, Minnesota 3

June 28, 2013 at 11:58 PM   |   Comments

MINNEAPOLIS, June 28 (UPI) -- Eric Hosmer hit two of Kansas City's four home runs Friday, a barrage that propelled the Royals to a 9-3 win over Minnesota.

The homers accounted for all but one of the Kansas City runs and the Royals jumped to a 6-0 lead through three innings. After losing four in a row, the Royals have captured three of their last five.

Billy Butler got Kansas City started with a three-run blast in the first, Mike Moustakas contributed a two-run shot in the third and Hosmer then produced a solo homer in the fifth and a two-run affair in the seventh.

The only Kansas City run that did not come on a homer scored on a single by Alex Gordon in the second.

James Shields (3-6) was the beneficiary of the assault, giving up three runs on eight hits in 6 1/3 to get the win.

P.J. Walters (2-4) gave up the first two Kansas City home runs and lasted only three innings.
