Twins closer Taylor Rogers celebrated with catcher Ryan Jeffers after finishing off a 5-4 victory over the Royals in Kansas City, Mo., on Sunday.

KANSAS CITY, MO. – The Twins took off for Cleveland following the game with every right to wish the Royals a good riddance.

"This is a team that's played us exceptionally tough," Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. "They've beat us up a little bit at times even and to be able to come out on top and go out on a high note was good for our guys."

Maybe it's fitting that the Twins escaped with a 5-4 win over the Royals on Sunday in the final meeting of the regular season between the two teams. The series included several tense games, and this one was no different.
