Twins 5, Royals 1
Kevin Slowey earned his second win of the season with the complete game. (Ed Zurga/AP)
Right-hander Kevin Slowey was masterful as the Twins completed their three-game sweep of the Royals in Kansas City. He needed just 101 pitches to throw the first complete game of his career in a Brad Radke-esque performance. The Twins' offensive barrage was highlighted by Carlos Gomez's four hits and two RBIs, and Alexi Casilla's three hits.
