Twins use power, craftiness to stop Royals 4-2

Pinch runner Ildemaro Vargas scored on a safety squeeze bunt by shortstop Jorge Polanco in the seventh inning, giving the Twins an insurance run in their 4-2 victory over Kansas City at Target Field on Sunday.

There were runners on first and third in the bottom of the seventh inning Sunday. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli sent in newly acquired Ildemaro Vargas to third as a pinch runner for Alex Avila with Jorge Polanco coming to bat.

On a 1-1 pitch, Polanco squared around to bunt. The ball dropped into the grass and Vargas took off for home and scored.

A safety squeeze. Anyone have that on their bingo card?
