Royals score three in 8th inning to beat Minnesota
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Royals fans waited almost all afternoon to see some offense. When their team finally built a rally, it came just in time to give Ervin Santana a much-deserved win.
Santana pitched eight strong innings, Alcides Escobar doubled home the go-ahead run and Kansas City beat the Minnesota Twins 3-1 on Monday in its home opener.
“Better later than never,” Santana said. “I know we are going to score runs.”
