Twins bats wake up
The Twins defeated the Royals at Kauffman Stadium yesterday, 7-6, ending their streak of 11 straight games scoring three or fewer runs. That was the longest streak of that kind for any major-league team this season, and it tied the longest within one season for the Twins since they moved to Minnesota in 1961. The Twins had another 11-game streak of that kind in August (8/6-8/15) 1970. However; that 1970 team went on to win 98 games before losing to the Orioles in the ALCS.
