MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Chris Colabello drove in three runs, Kyle Gibson pitched into the seventh inning and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 10-1 on Friday night to end a nine-game home losing streak that dated to last season.
Josmil Pinto homered for the Twins, who reached double digits in runs for the third time this year.
Mike Moustakas had two hits for Kansas City, which had won seven straight at Target Field.
A 4-6 start to the season for Minnesota has been largely due to ineffective starting pitching. The Twins had received just two outings of six or more innings entering the game _ only one quality start _ and the other four starters besides Gibson have a combined 7.50 ERA.
