Santana returns from suspension as Twins fall to Royals 3-2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Maybe it was the joy in being back on the mound after serving an 80-game suspension. Maybe it was the fact that Ervin Santana was facing his former team. Maybe it was simply that he was making them foolish.

Whatever the reason, Santana couldn't stop laughing between innings Sunday.

He allowed just two runs on three hits over eight innings, only to get stuck with no decision when Eric Hosmer drove in Lorenzo Cain in the ninth. The winning hit gave Kansas City a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins and a split of their four-game series.
