Small ball, big results: The Royals beat the Twins 6-1

The Royals were losing to the Minnesota Twins 1-0 going into the eighth inning — then Raul Ibanez singled. That started a chain of events that eventually blew the game wide open. After Ibanez‘s single, Lorenzo Cain came out to pinch-run. Cain stole second base, and the tying run was in scoring position with Mike Moustakas at the plate. Minnesota put on a left-handed defensive shift, and it wound up biting them in the backside.
