Twins' 102 losses matches most since move to Minnesota

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) With their major league-worst 102nd loss, Twins matched their most since moving to Minnesota for the 1961 season.

Kendrys Morales and Alex Gordon keyed an eighth-inning rally and the Kansas City Royals beat the Twins 5-2 on Wednesday night. Still, the defending World Series champions were eliminated from postseason contention with Baltimore's win at Toronto.

Minnesota lost for the 10th time in 11 games and matched the 1982 Twins for the team's most losses since the move. With two more defeats, the club would have its most since the 1949 Washington Senators finished 50-104.
