Cranking Runs in Kansas City & Welcome Danny Valencia

Twins third basemen Danny Valencia The Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 19-1 and 11-2 on consecutive nights in Kansas City. They have an amazing 39 hits in their first 2 games of the series. They've played just about as complete as a baseball team can with good pitching, great hitting, and good defense. Watching the games, I think Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City had just as many Twins fans as Royal fans. To purchase any upcoming Minnesota Twins tickets check out Ticket King!

It's hard to mention all the stars over the first 2 games but rookie Danny Valenica has 14 hits in his last 19 at bats in his last 4 games. Jason Repko has filled in nicely as well, making a spectacular catch on Monday night. Here are some of the other highlights:

-Joe Mauer went 5-5 with 7 rbi's on Monday, followed by 2-4 with 2 rbi on Tuesday. Yikes.
-Delmon Young went 4-6 on Monday and 2-4 on Tuesday.
-Francisco Liriano pitched 7 scoreless innings only allowing 3 hits on Monday
-Carl Pavano earned his 13th win on Tuesday, with 5 innings and surrendering 1 run
-Alexi Casilla was 2-4 with 3 rbi on Monday
