Lough returns for starting duty against Twins
MINNEAPOLIS -- David Lough returned to the Royals' lineup for the first time in a week after sitting out with a strained right hamstring. He was in right field and batted in the leadoff spot against Twins right-hander P.J. Walters on Wednesday night.

"It's been fine for three days now," Lough said. "I've been out there doing some running. Obviously, it's wet so you have to be careful tonight. But tonight's the true test."

Rain fell most of the day at Target Field, eliminating batting practice, but stopped as game time approached.

Lorenzo Cain again was in center field, one night after being struck in the helmet by a pitch during the Royals' 9-1 win in the series opener. He finished the game in which he had a triple, a double and a single.
