KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Delmon Young homered and drove in two runs and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Wednesday night to snap a season-long five-game losing streak.
Young, the first overall pick in the 2003 draft, hit his 20th homer with one out in the seventh on a full-count changeup from Gil Meche (0-5). The ball clipped the left-field pole. Young's single in the ninth scored Orlando Hudson, who had doubled, with the final run.
Matt Capps worked the ninth for his 16th save in 18 opportunities since the Twins acquired him in a July 29 trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
