Royals vs. Twins Sunday open thread

All of Kansas City has their eyes on the Royals today.

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Baltimore Orioles Scott Taetsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals will be on the minds of all Kansas City sports fans this afternoon, with the hopes they can take the rubber match against the Twins and take the series, avoiding a tie for last place.

Kris Bubic will look to avoid the home run derby Brady Singer endured last night. The Twins haven’t fared very well against lefties this year, and they’ll sit lefty Max Kepler today.

Kyle Isbel was called up today to replace Michael A. Taylor, who is out with a family emergency. Isbel gets the start in center, where he played most of the time for Omaha.

Game time is 1:10 CT from Minneapolis.
