Twins Smashed By Royals

Twins Smashed By Royals

Jeremy Guthrie pitched a four-hitter and Eric Hosmer drove in a career-high five runs to help the Kansas City Royals rout the Minnesota Twins 13-0 on Monday night.

The Royals, who have won 12 of their past 13 games, scored a season-high 13 runs.

Guthrie won his fourth straight start to log his 12th victory, which is a career high. It was his second career shutout and he lowered his earned run average to 3.94. The right-hander retired the final 13 batters, did not allow a Twins runner to reach third base and only two touched second base. He struck out seven and walked one.

Kevin Correia was pulled after two innings and 16 batters faced, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks. It got so bad that infielder Jamey Carroll pitched the eighth for the Twins, his first career big league outing on the mound. He retired the Royals in order.
