Royals 3, Twins 1
MINNEAPOLIS — The Royals' Ben Zobrist put a major dent in Minnesota's postseason bid with an RBI double in the eighth inning against struggling All-Star Glen Perkins. The Twins entered the night trailing Houston by one game and tied with Los Angeles in the AL wild-card race. The Angels beat Texas, and the Astros played later at Arizona. Wade Davis notched his 16th save in 17 attempts.
