Royals 6, Twins 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Nori Aoki drove in the go-ahead run during a six-run eighth inning, lifting the Royals. Billy Butler and Salvador Perez drove two runs each during the surge, which came after the Twins' Phil Hughes had stymied Kansas City for the first seven innings. Former Ray Wade Davis pitched a perfect eighth, and All-Star closer Greg Holland worked around a single in the ninth to cap a second straight late-game win. The Royals extended their lead over the Tigers to 21/2 games in the AL Central with their 11th win in their past 13 games at Kauffman Stadium.
