Alcides Escobar powers Royals in 6-1 victory over Twins

Alcides Escobar hit a pair of two-run doubles Monday to help the Royals beat the Twins 6-1 for their first win of the season at Target Field. Starting pitcher Danny Duffy allowed a lone run over 5 2/3 innings; he yielded only seven earned runs in 37 1/3 innings in June, which translates to a 1.69 ERA. The Royals (43-39) got 4 1/3 scoreless innings from their bullpen.
