MINNEAPOLIS -- With the Minnesota Twins long out of the playoff picture, manager Paul Molitor wants his players to understand exactly whats on the line.Namely, their jobs.Hector Santiago lost his third consecutive start since being acquired by Minnesota two weeks ago, and the Twins committed four errors in an 11-4 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.We have a lot of people that have a lot to play for here, Molitor said. Theres a lot of things up in the air.Paulo Orlando and Lorenzo Cain each got four hits and drove in three runs as the Royals won their first road series since late June. Edinson Volquez (9-10) threw six solid innings to snap his five-game winless streak, giving up two earned runs and five hits.Minnesota, meanwhile, closed its homestand 2-7 after starting August 5-2.We had a lot of misplays around the field today, so you dont want to point any fingers, Molitor said. Not a good game, not a good homestand. We come home 5-2 and things kind of turned the other way.Santiago (10-7) remained winless with Minnesota since coming over in a four-player trade with the Los Angeles Angels on Aug. 1. Hes allowed 15 earned runs in 14 1/3 innings in his first three starts for Minnesota.I thought I made some good pitches, Santiago said. They fouled them off, and then made some bad pitches and they didnt miss them.Orlando hit a three-run homer off Santiago in the fourth, capping a six-run inning.Brian Dozier hit his 26th home run for Minnesota and Joe Mauer had a pair of hits, including an RBI single in the fifth that pulled the Twins to 7-4.Then came the errors. Kansas City took advantage of three Twins errors in the sixth, two by third baseman Jorge Polanco, to pull away.Polancos second misplay loaded the bases for Cain, who singled off reliever Michael Tonkin to drive in a pair of runs. Two batters later, left fielder Robbie Grossman failed to come up with Kendrys Morales flyball, resulting in two more runs. Grossman also had an error during a six-run fourth.You see the ball start to come out of gloves and were not fielding balls cleanly, Molitor said. Im sure it becomes mental to some degree. We just had trouble catching the ball even on routine plays.ROSTER MOVEThe Twins designated LHP Andrew Albers for assignment during game, bringing the 40-man roster to 38.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: OF Miguel Sano was scheduled for an MRI on Monday for his sore right elbow. Both Molitor and Sano called the move precautionary, although its the same elbow that required Tommy John surgery and caused the Twins slugger to miss the 2014 season in the minors. Sano tweaked the elbow during warmups last weekend in Tampa Bay and the pain hasnt gone away. It bothers me in the sense of the pain, but Im not worried about anything being severe, Sano said through a translator, adding that it doesnt bother him while swinging.UP NEXTTwins: Minnesota is off Monday before Ervin Santana (5-9) takes the mound to start a two-game interleague set in Atlanta on Tuesday. Santana has won two straight. He threw a complete game against the Braves on July 26, but the Twins still lost 2-0. Cool Jordans For Sale . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff.

Adam Jones hit Collin McHughs first pitch into the seats in left field and Hyun Soo Kim singled before Manny Machado, Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo homered in succession.Houston answered with a five-run second to go up 6-5.

Hinch said. Its hard to describe, because youre not used to seeing that at this level. But that was quite an outburst for us.Springer said, The key to that game was that second inning.When the Astros finally got done running around the bases, they had a victory to savor.I know that this game is going to create some momentum, Altuve said, and were going to keep winning games.Altuve became the first Astro to have 20 homers and 20 steals in a season since Carlos Beltran in 2004.The Orioles, meanwhile, have 11 home runs in the first two games of this series. But Baltimore didnt have enough firepower in this one to overcome its poor pitching, which surrendered a season-high 15 runs and 18 hits.Miley was the most obvious culprit. Staked to a 5-1 lead, he gott two more outs before being lifted.ddddddddddddIt was terrible. Its embarrassing for that to happen, he said. I flat-out stunk.The left-hander is 0-2 with a 9.53 ERA in four starts since being traded from Seattle on July 31.Chris Devenski (2-4) allowed one hit in four innings for the Astros after McHugh yielded seven runs and nine hits in three innings.I dont know if Ive ever been blitzed like that before in my career, the right-hander said. Todays game in general was kind of a crazy.Springer provided a glimpse of things to come by hitting a leadoff homer on the fifth pitch from Miley.After the teams traded five-run innings, Baltimore went up 7-6 in the third and Houston pulled even in the fourth.The Astros took a 9-7 lead against Ubaldo Jimenez (5-10) in the fifth. Hernandez blooped an RBI single to center and Springer greeted Tyler Wilson with a run-scoring single.Pedro Alvarez homered in the bottom half before Houston pulled away in the sixth, getting a two-run homer from Altuve and a solo shot from Gattis.ROSTER MOVESAstros: Optioned reliever James Hoyt to Triple-A Fresno and recalled Brad Peacock from the same club.
