Mike Moustakas, Kansas City

The third baseman’s two-homer night gave him nine home runs on the year — a third of them coming at Target Field.


52 Wins by the Royals, against 51 losses, the first time since 2003 they have been above .500 in July. 2003 also was the last time they finished above .500.

0 Hits by Royals designated hitter Billy Butler, breaking an 18-game hitting streak vs. the Twins

3 Perfect innings by Ryan Pressly, ending his streak of giving up runs in five consecutive games.


Kevin Correia, pitching against Kansas City righthander Jeremy Guthrie, will try to reverse an ugly trend — the Twins have lost five of his past six starts.
