Royals hope to salvage series finale vs. Twins

Right-hander Tyler Mahle will try to continue his winning streak on Wednesday afternoon when the Minnesota Twins attempt to complete a three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals in Minneapolis.

It will be Mahle's third start for the Twins since coming over from the Cincinnati Reds on the Aug. 2 trade deadline for a trio of prospects. Minnesota won both of his previous starts, including a 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday in Anaheim, Calif., when Mahle allowed three hits and two walks over six scoreless innings. He struck out six.

Mahle (6-7, 4.26 ERA) has a 3.00 ERA with 11 strikeouts in 12 innings with Minnesota. He got a no-decision in his Twins debut at Target Field against the Toronto Blue Jays on Aug. 5, a contest Minnesota rallied to win 6-5 in 10 innings.
