Royals Complete Sweep Of Twins

Associated Press - August 1, 2013 8:56 pm

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Kansas City Royals won their ninth straight game, stretching their longest winning streak in more than a decade by beating Minnesota 7-2 Thursday behind Billy Butler’s hitting and Lorenzo Cain’s highlight reel catch in center field.

The Royals last won nine straight when they opened the 2003 season at 9-0. The last time Kansas City won more in a row was a 10 game string in 1994.

Butler had two hits and drove in two runs.  Justin Maxwell had a hit and an RBI a day after being acquired in a trade with Houston.

James Shields (6-7) gave up two runs on five hits and five walks in six innings for the Royals, who swept the three game series and are showing potential to be a factor late in the season.
