KANSAS CITY, Mo. Tom Brady Womens Jersey . —Cole De Vries
likes to face the Kansas City Royals. Justin Morneau drove in two runs and
Minnesota rookie De Vries beat the Royals again 3-1 on Saturday in the first
game of a doubleheader. De Vries (4-5) has four career victories and three of
them are against the Royals. “Oh, I cant say that I know that,” De Vries said of
being 3-0 in as many starts against the Royals. “That makes me happy. Thats
pretty good.” So he owns them? “I guess,” he said and laughed. “Something is
working. I feel like half of my starts have been against the Royals or the White
Sox. I feel I know both those teams decently well. I feel comfortable pitching
against both of them just because Ive pitched against them so much.” He limited
the Royals to one run on seven hits, walked none and struck out three over 6 2/3
innings. “My two-seamer for whatever reason it just had a lot of movement, had
pretty good control with it and I was getting a lot of awkward swings,” De Vries
said. “That and my curveball were definitely my two best today.” De Vries has
won consecutive starts, holding Texas and Kansas City to 10 hits and two earned
runs in 11 2-3 innings. “Anytime you can get back-to-back wins, its alright,” De
Vries said. Morneau, who has 77 career RBIs against the Royals, doubled home
Josh Willingham in the first inning with the first Twins run. Morneaus sacrifice
fly to centre scored Pedro Florimon, who led off the fifth inning with a bunt
single. Ryan Doumits two-out single to right brought home Darin Mastroianni with
the other run. Royals rookie Will Smith (4-7) lost his third consecutive start,
giving up three runs on nine hits and two walks, while striking out four in
six-plus innings. The Twins loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but
reliever Vin Mazzaro got out of the jam when Doumit grounded into a double play
after Morneau was intentionally walked. Mazzaro had not pitched since Aug. 21 in
the minors. The Royals chased De Vries in the seventh with three hits.
Johnny Giavotellas two-out single scored Mike Moustakas. “We just couldnt muster
anything against him (De Vries),” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He does a nice
job of keeping the ball down and getting us to swing at his pitches a lot more
than we want to.” Glen Perkins worked the ninth for his ninth save in 12
opportunities. Royals right fielder Jeff Francoeur logged his major
league-leading 16th assist in the fifth when he threw out Willingham trying to
go from first to third. Notes: Manager Ron Gardenhire said the Twins “might go”
to a six-man rotation with the additions Saturday of RHPs P.J. Walters, who was
reinstated from the disabled list, and Esmerling Vasquez, who was promoted from
Triple-A Rochester and is scheduled to start Sunday against the Royals. Vasquez
was strictly a reliever from 2009-11 with Arizona, but the Twins plan to look at
him as a starter. Walters started before shoulder inflammation shut him down for
70 games. ...There were 6.54 inches of rain to fall at Kauffman Stadium in a
29-hour period before the first pitch Saturday, which was delayed 21 minutes.
.The Royals recalled OF David Lough, who hit .275 with Triple-A Omaha, and C
Manny Pina, who hit .260 in 43 games with Triple-A Northwest Arkansas after
having right knee surgery in spring training. Lough started off the nightcap
with a single in his first big league at-bat. ...The Royals dropped to 7-22
against theTwins, Seattle and Toronto, the three last-place teams in their AL
divisions. Vince Wilfork Womens Jersey . Louis
Cardinals. The move was made Friday as the struggling Twins designated
outfielder Clete Thomas for assignment. Vince Wilfork Youth Jersey . —The famed
statue of Joe Paterno was taken down from outside the Penn State football
stadium Sunday, eliminating a key piece of the iconography surrounding the
once-sainted football coach accused of burying child sex abuse allegations

sweeping changes during the off-season that sent expectations soaring.CHICAGO—
The Chicago Blackhawks agreed Sunday to a two-year deal with defenceman
Sheldon Brookbank. “They have a lot of “D” here. I was told Id be kinda five or
six range,” Brookbank said of playing time. “I was more focused on finding an
organization that wanted me and Chicago seemed like they wanted me, so hopefully
it will be a good fit.” The Blackhawks top two defenceman are Duncan Keith and
Brent Seabrook with Johnny Oduya, Nick Leddy, Niklas Hjalmarsson and

had a career-high three goals and 11 assists in 80 games with the Ducks last
season. He has four goals, 32 assists in 277 career games over seven seasons
with Nashville, New Jersey and Anaheim. “Just kind of steady,” Brookbank said,
describing his style. “You kind of know what you are getting out of me, not
anything really too flashy. I take pride in making a good first pass and trying
to play hard and stick up for my teammates.” The Blackhawks announced the deal
on Sunday, the opening day of the NHLs free agency period. ’ ’ ’
