 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Kyle Davies pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning in his home debut for Kansas City and combined with three relievers to help the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 1-0 on Thursday.
Acquired in the trade that sent reliever Octavio Dotel to Atlanta, Davies (1-1) struck out five and walked two over 6 2-3 innings in his second start for Kansas City. The 23-year-old right-hander walked Alexi Casilla leading off the game and then retired 14 in a row before Jason Kubel doubled with two outs in the fifth.
Tony Pena Jr. doubled down the left-field line leading off the third for the Royals' first hit. Joey Gathright sacrificed him to third and Jason LaRue hit a sacrifice fly.
Joakim Soria got four outs for his 12th save in 15 opportunities, helping Kansas City take two of three in the series. The Royals have won five of their last six rubber games in three-game series at home.
