Rogers falters, Twins allow 7 in 9th in 12-5 loss to Royals

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jose Berrios and Taylor Rogers have been the Twins' most reliable pitchers and helped push Minnesota to the verge of the AL Central title.

For one game, Berrios and Rogers each faltered as the Twins missed a chance to build on their division lead.

Rogers got tagged during a seven-run ninth inning and Minnesota fell to the Kansas City Royals 12-5 on Saturday night. The Twins remained four games ahead of Cleveland, which lost at home to Philadelphia.
