Sano makes the most of a quick trip to KC
Miguel Sano, who drove in four runs in the series opener on Friday, went 3-for-5 with five RBIs in the second and final game of the series, as the Twins extended the Royals’ losing streak to nine games with a 7–5 win on Sunday. Admittedly, two-game series aren’t common. (Saturday’s scheduled game at Kansas City was rained out.) But even on a day when Anthony Rendon drove in 10 runs in one game, Sano’s nine RBIs over in the Twins-Royals series merits mention. It was the highest total in a two-game set since Scott Rolen drove in nine runs for the Cardinals against the Giants in September 2006.
