The designated hitter's grand slam in the sixth put the game out of reach.
5 consecutive starts without a victory for Anthony Swarzak before coming through Tuesday.
25 triples by Twins hitters, after Denard Span and Ben Revere each had one.
It all comes down to this. The Twins must beat Bruce Chen and the Royals on Wednesday to avoid losing 100 games for the second time in club history.
