Twins-Royals Preview

(AP) -- The Kansas City Royals are off to their best start in 12 seasons but couldn't take a series from the Minnesota Twins last week.

The Royals won't have to wait long for a rematch with a three-game set in Kansas City beginning Monday night, and they'll try to get the better of Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson for the first time.

The Royals (9-3) have their best record after 12 games since opening a franchise-best 11-1 in 2003. Another win Monday would give them their third-best showing after 13 contests.
