On Sunday a group went to the Kansas City Royals and Minnesota Twins baseball game. The Twins and the Royals are in the Central Division of Major League Baseball’s American League. The Twins are based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The team is named after the Twin Cities area comprising Minneapolis and St. Paul. The name Royals originates from the American Royal, a livestock show, horse show, rodeo, and championship barbecue competition held annually in Kansas City since 1899.
Eric Hosmer drove in Lorenzo Cain with nobody out in the ninth inning, helping the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 for a split of their four-game series. Since Minnesota were home to the attendees, they were a little disappointed that the Royals beat the Twins.
