Twins keep heat on Tigers, beat Royals

BY foxsports • September 27, 2009

Denard Span kept his eye on the ball, and the scoreboard.

The Minnesota leadoff man got four hits and drove in a career-high six runs, sending the Twins past the Kansas City Royals 11-6 Saturday night for their 11th victory in 12 games.

The Twins remained two games behind AL Central-leading Detroit, which beat Chicago 12-5. Miinnesota opens a four-game series against the Tigers on Monday night at Detroit.

It's definitely a night when it just feels like nothing can go wrong," Span said. "You see the ball and it seems like every pitch looks like a beachball. When you go to swing, you feel like it's going to fall. I've never had six RBIs in a game at any level."
