De Vries pitches Twins past Royals

Sep 1, 2012 - 11:21 PM Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Cole De Vries tossed 6 2/3 strong innings on Saturday and the Minnesota Twins dropped the Kansas City Royals, 3-1, in game one of a doubleheader at Kauffman Stadium.

De Vries (4-5) allowed just one run on seven hits with three strikeouts and did not walk a batter to record his second consecutive positive decision. Alex Burnett and Jared Burton combined for 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief and Glen Perkins worked around a two-out hit-by-pitch in the ninth to notch his ninth save.

Justin Morneau drove in a pair of runs and Ryan Doumit added an RBI single for the Twins, who have won two of their last three games. Jamey Carroll had three hits in the victory.

Will Smith (4-7) was saddled with the loss after allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks over six-plus innings. He struck out four.

Johnny Giavotella drove in the only run with a single for the Royals, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.
