MI MINNEAPOLIS -- Needing a big hit, the Minnesota Twins instead turned a little tapper back to the mound into big trouble for the Kansas City Royals. Custom Los Angeles Angels Jersey . Pitcher Wade Davis made a wild flip home on a comebacker in the eighth inning and the Twins rallied past the Royals 4-3 Sunday for a three-game sweep. "Had the play right there in front of me, just didnt make it," Davis said. A madcap sequence put the Twins ahead and a crazy play ended it, too. With two outs and none on in the ninth, Mike Moustakas popped a ball straight up. As he stood to watch it in the batters box, catcher Kurt Suzuki tripped over him, resulting in an interference call for the final out. "Thats always on the hitter," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Thats not going to be on the defender. He has a right to catch the ball." After the Royals scored three times in the eighth for a 3-2 lead, reliever Aaron Crow (0-1) walked two Minnesota batters to start the bottom half. Davis struck out Joe Mauer, but Trevor Plouffe walked to load the bases. Chris Herrmann then hit a grounder back to the mound and Davis, hoping to begin an easy double play, hesitated briefly after getting the ball out of his glove. Davis toss sailed past catcher Salvador Perez. Pedro Florimon scored the tying run and Dozier slid home under Perezs return throw to Davis, who was a step late covering the plate. "You got to be aggressive, you cant lose that," Dozier said. "I saw the throw. I saw Davis just hanging out a good 10 yards away from the thing, so might as well take a shot." The lapse by Davis compounded an already frustrating series for the Royals. Kansas City was outscored 21-5 in the sweep. "I got frustrated and made a mental mistake by not being there," Davis said. "Its unacceptable." Casey Fien (1-0) got one out and Glen Perkins posted his third save. The Royals have lost their first five road games this season, managing just nine runs. "I think everybodys trying to do too much right now," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "When you go in a slump everybody tries to do more, and thats only natural for a team when youre having trouble scoring runs." Josmil Pinto hit his third homer in the seventh inning to give the Twins a 2-0 lead. Twins starter Kevin Correia cruised through seven innings before running into trouble in the eighth. He allowed three runs on six hits in seven innings. Eric Hosmers RBI double capped the Royals three-run eighth. Not wearing sleeves despite a gametime temperature of 42 degrees, Jason Vargas held the Twins to two runs on five hits over seven innings for his third straight quality start this season. That type of outing would have been more than enough last season, when the Royals won 15 of 19 from Minnesota. But the Twins now have the upper hand to start 2014. NOTES: The Twins swept the Royals for the first time since winning four in a row in June 2011. ... A CT scan revealed a small fracture in LF Josh Willinghams hand. Twins assistant GM Rob Antony said the team will consult hand specialists, but remains hopeful that Willingham wont need more than 15 days on the disabled list. ...

Brad Boyes, Tomas Kopecky and Jonathan Huberdeau also scored, and Tom Gilbert had three assists for the Panthers. Ryan OReilly scored for Colorado, which has lost three straight. The bad news kept coming for the Avalanche when coach Patrick Roy said star centre Matt Duchene injured an oblique during the third period. He played only three shifts after the second intermission.

"I dont know if its the mountain air," he said after looking sharp on consecutive nights. "Obviously, I lived out here in Colorado the last year, but I felt real good and I was seeing the puck real well." The Panthers, who lost in Minnesota on Friday, looked like the fresher team throughout. They outshot Colorado 14-10 in the first period and had more scoring opportunities. They cashed in when Scottie Upshall found Boyes alone in front of the net, and he beat Colorado goalie Semyon Varlamov with a wrister to make it 1-0 with 7:20 left in the first period. Varlamov finished with 29 saves. "We set the pace pretty good," Gilbert said. "Weve had slow starts and we just got pucks deep and played a great game down low.&" Colorado stayed on its heels in part because of four penalties -- one a double-minor for high sticking by Nate Guenin. Mike Trout Jersey. The Panthers capitalized on that early in the second when Campbells slap shot from the top of the circle beat Varlamov to make it 2-0 1:15 into the frame. It was the first two-goal lead of the season for the Panthers. "Its nice playing with a lead, its a good feeling and thats what you want all the time," Campbell said. The Avalanche cut the deficit in half when OReillys shot went off Gilberts leg and past Thomas early in the second, but Kopecky restored the two-goal lead when he scored 2 seconds after Colorado killed off its fifth penalty in the first 33 minutes of the game. "We got some energy back after the goal and gave up a goal," Roy said. "We were battling and played them more even in the third." Colorado amped up the pressure in the third, but couldnt get one past Thomas, who made 15 saves in the period. Huberdeau sealed it with his fifth goal at 12:16 of the third. "We havent had the lead very often, but when we have had it weve played pretty well," Thomas said. "We play very composed with the lead and thats a good sign. Its been our goal at times this year. The last thing we need is to have problems in that area." NOTES: Upshall had two assists. ...
