Minnesota Twins 0

Kansas City Royals 7

The Twins are still winless on the season after another loss to the Royals Saturday.

Minnesota failed to score a run, committed two errors and turned to their bullpen earlier than expected.

1. Franchise record

With the loss tonight, Minnesota has officially had their worst opening start to a season.

2. Off night for Escobar

Eduardo Escobar has arguably been the Twins best player. Tonight was a night he would like to forget as his two errors in the fifth inning were gut punching.

His first error came when he booted a potential double-play ball giving Kansas City runners on first and second. Later in the inning with the bases loaded, Escobar made a costly throwing error which allowed another run for Kansas City.

3. Strikeouts piling up

Minnesota struck out nine times tonight and failed to produce a single run going 0-5 with runners in scoring position.

Minnesota struck out 49 times coming into tonight and are on track to break the MLB record for team strikeouts.
