Royals 3, Twins 1
MINNEAPOLIS — Bruce Chen bounced back with a solid start and the Royals won their fifth straight. Kansas City outscored Minnesota 17-3 in the three-game sweep. KC finished the year with a 15-4 record against its AL Central rival. "They've probably had our number in the past, so it's tough to say anything bad about them," said second baseman Chris Getz, who had one of Kansas City's three RBI singles.
