Cruz hits 400th HR, Sanó homers twice; Twins top Royals 12-8

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) When Nelson Cruz signed with the Minnesota Twins this past offseason, he made a few predictions. He was confident he would get to 400 career home runs this year, and he also believed the Twins would make the playoffs.

One down, one to go.

Cruz hit his 400th career home run, Miguel Sano connected twice and the Twins powered past the Kansas City Royals 12-8 Sunday.
