Berrios aims to keep Twins rolling vs. Royals

Right-hander Jose Berrios will try to win his third consecutive start when the Minnesota Twins face the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night in Minneapolis.

Minnesota (95-59), vying for its first American League Central title since 2010, holds a four-game lead over the Cleveland Indians (91-63) with eight games remaining. The Twins have won four of their past five.

Kansas City (56-99) has dropped four in a row and seven of its last eight. A loss would mark the second straight 100-defeat season for the Royals, who finished 58-104 in 2018.
