Twins get their Target Field mojo back, crush Royals 13-4


Richard Tsong-Taatarii, Star Tribune

Jose Berrios (17) of the Minnesota Twins started the game and gets the win.

Luis Arraez's three-game mini-slump ended with a couple of hits Sunday, and Josh Donaldson had two extra-base hits for the first time as a Twin. Jose Berrios got his strikeout pitch back, and Andrelton Simmons went deep for the first time all season.

But of all the finally-what-a-relief performances turned in during the Twins' 13-4 victory over the Royals, the biggest one may have been related to the city-block-sized plot of land they were playing on. Yep, Target Field feels like home again.

"Guys are having a great time. Stringing those at-bats together brings a great feel and an energy," Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said after the Twins cut their AL Central deficit to six games behind Kansas City. "There's nothing like it. There's nothing like it when the guys get rolling."
