Young homer power Twins
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Delmon Young homered and drove in two runs and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Wednesday night to snap a season-long five-game losing streak.
Young, the first overall pick in the 2003 draft, hit his 20th homer with one out in the seventh on a full-count changeup from Gil Meche (0-5). The ball clipped the left-field pole.
Young's single in the ninth scored Orlando Hudson, who had doubled, with the final run.
