Dozier's 3-run homer sends Bailey, Royals over Twins 6-1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) In the span of a week, Hunter Dozier went from the injured list to the delivery room to the star role in the Kansas City Royals' 6-1 win over the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins.

The young slugger hit a three-run shot during a five-run third inning Sunday, made a couple of stellar defensive plays at third base and gave Homer Bailey and the Kansas City bullpen all the offense they needed against the Twins on a soggy, overcast afternoon at Kauffman Stadium.

"I knew my timing was going to be off," said Dozier, who had been sidelined the last three weeks with an oblique strain. "I felt better today. Hopefully keep getting better and better."
