Royals sweep Twins to Extend AL Central Lead

June 11,2015

EDINSON VOLQUEZ pitched seven innings to pick up his fifth win of the season, completing a three game sweep of the second place Minnesota Twins. Coming into the series the Royals were one game behind the Twins, but now lead the Al Central by 2. ALEX GORDON helped the Royals by blasting his seventh homerun of the season. Frustration was obvious on the Twins bench as both TORII HUNTER and Manager Paul Molitor were ejected for arguing balls and strikes.
