Miguel Sano's first homer in more than a month helps Twins snap losing streak in Kansas City

It was Sano's first homer since April 25.

Miguel Sano homered for the first time since April 25 and Eddie Rosario came up big with a three-run double to help the Twins snap a four-game losing streak, beating the Royals 8-5 Monday night in Kansas City. 

"It was good to see Miggy hit one over the fence," manager Paul Molitor said, via TwinsBaseball.com. "It had been a while since we'd seen that."

Sano returned from a nearly month-long stay on the disabled list on Friday and was 1-for-12 before his home run. 

Leading 3-2 in the eighth, Eddie Rosario poked a soft liner barely into the outfield grass in right-center-field and turned it into a bases-clearing double to break the game open. 

Rosario leads the Twins in batting average (.297), home runs (9), RBI (32), hits (57), runs (30) and stolen bases (5).
