Twins routed by Royals


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Mike Aviles didn't feel he was in a funk. Even at 0 for 18, he didn't consider that long enough to be a slump.

No need to think about that anymore.

Aviles doubled twice and drove in three runs as the Kansas City Royals became the latest team to tag Francisco Liriano, roughing up the Minnesota Twins 10-5.

Alex Gordon added two hits and drove in two runs. The Royals scored six times in the fourth inning to break open the game.
