Twins face Royals, look to extend lead on Indians

The Minnesota Twins open their final home series of the season on Thursday night when they begin a four-game set with the Kansas City Royals at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Minnesota (93-59) holds a four-game lead in American League Central over the Cleveland Indians (89-63) with 10 games to play.

Kansas City (56-97), which has lost five of its past six games, is in fourth place, 37 1/2 games behind the Twins. However, the Royals will have a big say in whether Minnesota can win its first division title since 2010. The teams finish the season with a three-game series in Kansas City next weekend.
