Royals-Twins Preview

(AP) -- With three players riding impressive hitting streaks, the Kansas City Royals should feel confident about extending a lengthy series run without All-Star Alex Gordon.

Lorenzo Cain, Salvador Perez and Paulo Orlando hope to continue their offensive tear Tuesday night when the visiting Royals chase their seventh win in nine games as well as a franchise-record eighth straight victory over the MLB-worst Minnesota Twins.

Cain is hitting .403 with four homers and 11 RBIs over a 15-game road hitting streak after going 2 for 5 in Monday's series-opening 10-4 victory. The center fielder is batting .375 in his past 11 versus Minnesota and .406 in his last eight at Target Field.
