Twins-Royals Preview

(AP) -- With every victory, the Kansas City Royals grow more confident.

Following a second straight comeback win, the Royals look to complete a three-game sweep by handing the visiting Minnesota Twins a fifth consecutive loss Thursday night.

One day after Alex Gordon's two-run homer in the ninth propelled Kansas City (74-58) to a 2-1 victory Tuesday, the Royals scored all their runs in the eighth inning for a 6-1 win.
