Twins turn to Perez seeking sweep of Royals

Left-hander Martin Perez will try to pick up his first victory in four starts as the Minnesota Twins go for a series sweep of the Kansas City Royals on Sunday afternoon in Minneapolis.

Perez (7-2, 3.97 ERA) last won on May 23 at the Los Angeles Angels, 16-7, capping a streak of six victories in seven starts. He received a no-decision in his last start on Tuesday after allowing four runs on six hits in five innings of a 6-5 win over Seattle.

Perez is 1-0 with a 2.29 ERA in three career starts against Kansas City. He will be opposed by right-hander Jakob Junis (4-6, 5.35) who is 0-1 with a 4.50 in five career starts against the Twins.
