Twins 5, Royals 3: Home Runs, Tyler Duffey Stop Twins' Losing Streak

Balls were flying faster than radiation leaked from the Springfield nuclear plant, but mostly via Twins bats. Brian Dozier whacked career dong #100. Before last Monday, Tyler Duffey had given up 16 runs in 9.2 innings his previous three starts. Make it two solid starts in a row, as Duffey struck out six and allowed just two runs over seven innings. Lowering his ERA to 5.71. He's had ups and downs. But you knew that.
