The Twins fell to the Royals 6-4 Monday night at Target Field. A ninth inning rally fizzled for the Twins, resulting in the loss.

Kansas City scored three runs in the fifth inning off of starting pitcher Trevor May to take the lead. May finished the night allowing three runs on seven hits with four walks in 4.2 innings pitched.

Jason Vargas held Minnesota in check in his seven innings of work, allowing just one run on four hits and one walk to earn his 10th win of the season.

The Twins rallied for three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning off of reliever Aaron Crow. Trevor Plouffe hit a three-run home run with one out to cut the Royals lead to 6-4, but Chris Parmelee and Kurt Suzuki were retired to end the game.

Minnesota falls to 55-68 on the season, 13.5 games behind Kansas City in the American League Central. On this date last season, the Twins were 54-69.

The Twins begin a series with Cleveland tonight at Target Field. Trevor Bauer (4-7, 4.35) will start for the Indians against Minnesota’s Kyle Gibson (11-9, 3.96).
