After a rainout in June caused the Royals to miss out on a precious August off-day by having to play a makeup game against the Yankees, the first place Royals welcome the Minnesota Twins to town for the final meetings between the two teams in 2014. While the Royals haven't dominated the Twins quite like they did last year when they went 15-4, they have rebounded from getting...
