Alex Gordon and Billy Butler each hit a two-run homer and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 7-6 on Friday night for their third straight win.

Mike Moustakas delivered the go-ahead single in the eighth
inning and Alcides Escobar added an RBI single three batters later
for Kansas City.

Trevor Plouffe homered for the Twins. Alexi Casilla had two hits
and two RBIs, but Minnesota again struggled with runners in scoring
position and dropped below the Royals for the worst record in
baseball.

Jonathan Broxton struck out Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau for his
third save in four chances.

Gordon gave the Royals an early lead with a 439-foot drive off
Carl Pavano in the first. Butler's homer in the third made it 4-3
Kansas City.
