The Minnesota Twins started two former Central Coast standouts on Monday, but the Twins suffered a tough 13-0 loss at the hands of the red-hot Kansas City Royals.
Former Cal Poly star Kevin Correia started on the mound for Minnesota. But he was taken out after 16 batters. He allowed 6 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks. He fell to 7-8 after falling to the Royals for the second straight start. Things got so bad for the Twins that infielder Jamey Carroll pitched the eighth inning. He retired the Royals in order in his first career big league outing on the mound.
Santa Maria native Doug Bernier started for the third game in a row for the Twins. The 33 year old went 1 for 3 in the number 9 spot in the lineup at shortstop. He's hitting .269 in 11 games this season for Minnesota.
Jeremy Guthrie pitched a 4-hit shutout for the Royals, who've won 12 of their past 13 games and scored a season-high 13 runs. Eric Hosmer clubbed a 2-run home run and drove in a career-high 5 RBI.
