Base-running blunders doom Twins in 3-2 loss in KC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Eduardo Nunez was caught straying too far from first base. Sam Fuld was picked off first the next inning. Brian Dozier was thrown out while foolishly trying to score on an errant throw.

Three outs, all made on the base paths by the Minnesota Twins in the span of a couple innings, and all proving costly in a 3-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.

Asked whether the miscues haunted him, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire replied: "Sure they do."
