Twins unable to solve Royals bullpen in 5-4 loss

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Right fielder Chris Colabello misjudged a fly ball. Third baseman Trevor Plouffe never saw a liner hit at him. And catcher Josmil Pinto made the most glaring mistake when he threw the ball into left field for an error during a double steal.

The result of all that Minnesota mayhem was a five-run fourth inning for the Kansas City Royals, and a head-scratching 5-4 loss on Saturday for Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.

"These plays ended up costing us a ball game," he said.
