The Royals not going down easy scored two more in the top of the third to bring them within one. The Twins put up another insurance run in the bottom of the third to make it KC 4 Min 6. After the third neither team good bring a runner in. The Royals’ LaCock went 4-4 and raised his batting average to .619. The Royals had 11 hits, but Hassler’s 6 runs (5 earned) in 3 innings pitched would even make it difficult for the ’27 Yankees to win. Thormosgard (3-8, 4.63 ERA) did not pitch spectacular, but good enough to get the much needed victory. Iron man, Mike Marshall picked up his first save.
