Twins Drop Fifth Straight

Twins Drop Fifth Straight

Bruce Chen and three relievers combined on a five-hitter as the Royals completed a three-game sweep of the Twins with a 3-1 win at Target Field.  Brian Dozier homered for the Twins, who have dropped five straight and 10 of their last 13 overall.  Samuel Deduno fell to 8-and-8 with the loss.  He lasted only three innings due to right shoulder soreness.

The Twins open up a six-game road trip tonight in Texas against the Rangers.  Minnesota will then head to Houston for three games with the Astros.  Liam Hendricks gets the ball for the Twins in tonight’s series opener.  He is 0-and-2 with a 6.20 ERA in four starts.  The Rangers will counter with Yu Darvish, who is 12-and-5 with a 2.68 ERA.
