Twins 7, Royals 1

Twins 7, Royals 1

MINNEAPOLIS — Joe Mauer hit his first homer of the season, Brian Dozier hit his fourth and Ricky Nolasco earned his first win for the Twins. Former Ray James Shields allowed six runs in the second inning, but none was earned because Shields misplayed Kurt Suzuki's sacrifice bunt, with the ball slipping out of his hand as he tried to throw to third. Later, third baseman Mike Moustakas couldn't handle a hard-hit grounder by Dozier that deflected into left, allowing two runs to score.
