    postseason for the fourth year in a row.Kendrys Morales and Alex Gordon keyed an
    eighth-inning rally and Kansas City beat the Minnesota Twins 5-2 on Wednesday
    night, but the Royals were still knocked out of playoff contention.The defending
    World Series champs were eliminated when Baltimore beat Toronto 3-2 earlier
    Wednesday.Obviously wed like to be playing a lot more baseball, but the reality
    of it is were not, said Eric Hosmer, who hit a two-run homer in the
    third.Morales ground-rule double to right scored Jarrod Dyson, who had doubled
    and stole third. Gordons single scored Whit Merrifield and pinch-runner Billy
    Burns.Dyson said he would not be watching postseason games.Its kind of sad and
    tough to watch postseason when youre not in it, Dyson said.The Twins, who have
    lost 10 of 11, have dropped 102 games, tying the 1982 team for its highest total
    since moving to Minnesota for the 1961 season. The Washington Senators lost a
    franchise-worst 113 games in 1904.Were trying to win games, but its becoming
    difficult, Twins right-hander Ervin Santana said. But, I think we just try to do
    too much and we forgot about the little things. Its a game. You just have to
    prepare to be better for the next year.Taylor Rogers (3-1), the fourth of five
    Twins pitchers, took the loss after allowing three runs, three hits and two
    walks while retiring only one of the six batters he faced.Joakim Soria (5-8)
    worked a scoreless eighth to pick up the victory. Wade Davis got his 27th save
    in 30 chances.Royals left-hander Jason Vargas tossed five shutout innings,
    allowing four hits, striking out six and walking one. He threw 53 strikes in 87
    pitches, leaving with a 2-0 lead in his third start since having Tommy John
    surgery in 2015. Vargas finishes with a 2.25 ERA, allowing three runs and eight
    hits while striking out 11 and walking three in 12 innings.It was nice to have a
    reward as far as having some success once I was able to step underneath the
    lights and really get out there for real, Vargas said. Going into the offseason,
    I was just hoping for health as far as being able to have the normal offseason.
    So to have a nice outing like this before is a nice comfortable feeling.Rookie
    Kevin McCarthy, however, did not hold the lead for long. McCarthy yielded a
    two-run two-out home run to Kennys Vargas in the sixth. After McCarthy walked
    the next two batters, Peter Moylan was summoned to face John Ryan Murphy,
    retiring him on a comebacker.The Vargas homer snapped a Twins streak of 106
    innings without more than one run. According to Elias, it is the longest such
    streak in the majors since the Philadelphia Phillies went 109 innings in 1942
    without scoring multiple runs.We just kind of stagnated from there, Twins
    manager Paul Molitor said.Hosmer hit a two-run homer, his 25th, off Santana in
    the third. The Royals did not get another hit until Dysons one-out double in the
    eighth.NO REPEATThe Royals follow the San Francisco Giants (in 2013 and 15) and
    Boston Red Sox (in 2014) in failing to reach the playoffs after winning the
    World Series.ATTENDANCE DECLINEThe Wednesday attendance of 23,437 pushed the
    Royals season total to 2,445,361 after 77 home dates. After 77 Kauffman Stadium
    dates last year, the Royals had pulled 2,564,750 through the turnstiles, a
    decline of 119,389.ZERO AT KCThe Twins dropped to 0-9 at Kauffman Stadium. They
    have never finished a season winless at Kansas City.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: 1B Joe
    Mauer (hamstring injury) was not in the lineup, but Molitor said he was
    available to pinch hit.Royals: OF Lorenzo Cain, who has played only one game in
    September because of left wrist inflammation, will not play again this season.
    There is no need to push him, Royals manager Ned Yost said.UP NEXTTwins: RHP
    Kyle Gibson, who went to the University of Missouri, will make his 11th career
    start against the Royals.Royals: LHP Danny Duffy is 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA in three
    outings against the Twins this season.

    . Still, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke thought taking him out
    before the fifth inning was an unusual move. "Im looking up at the board and hes
    got two hits given up and one run, and Im taking him out after the fourth
    inning," Roenicke said. MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Louisville coach Jeff Walz got a
    victory, and he hopes Middle Tennessee gave his fifth-ranked Cardinals a lesson
    in listening to the scouting report.Mariya Moore scored 27 points, and
    Louisville Cardinals never trailed beating Middle Tennessee 91-72 Wednesday
    night despite giving up a career-high 27 points and 11 assists to Blue Raiders
    guard Ty Petty.I hope our kids believe now that shes really good, Walz said. We
    tried to tell them that, but I think there were a few times we decided not to
    guard her just to see is she really good. After 27 points, Im hoping they
    realized that, and then Im hoping theyll believe us from now on when we tell
    them someone is good. She was phenomenal.This was Louisvilles first visit to
    Middle Tennessee since 2008, and the Cardinals had little trouble improving to
    5-1 in this series despite letting Petty knock down 10 of her 17 shots.Ciera
    Johnson opened with a layup for the Cardinals (3-0), and Alex Johnson hit a
    short jumper to tie it up at 2. That was as close as Middle Tennessee (0-2) from
    Conference USA would get as Louisville shot 67 percent taking a 22-9 lead after
    the first quarter.Asia Durr also had 22 points, and Myisha Hines-Allen added 17
    for Louisville.Alex Johnson had 13 for the Blue Raiders.We hope we grow up,
    Middle Tennessee coach Rick Insell said of his young team with Petty the only
    senior.Petty pulled the Blue Raiders within 26-21 capping a 12-2 run with a 3
    with 4:39 left. That woke the Cardinals up, and they answered with 15 straight
    points and led 41-24 at halftime.The Cardinals pushed their lead to as much as
    24 a couple times in the fourth quarter, the first on a 3 by Hines-Allen.BIG
    PICTURELouisville: The Cardinals continued their run through an easy opening
    portion of the schedule before playing fourth-ranked Souuth Carolina on
    Nov.dddddddddddd 27th. This was the Cardinals third straight game against a team
    from Tennessee but not against the states only ranked team, No. 13
    Tennessee.Middle Tennessee: This was the highest-ranked team to visit since No.
    4 Tennessee in 2013, helping the Blue Raiders bring in some star power for their
    home opener. They dropped to 5-1 all-time against Louisville, but its part of
    Insells toughening up his Blue Raiders during nonconference play for March.
    Arizona State and Georgia Tech also visit in December.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe
    Cardinals did little to hurt themselves with an easy victory. This is their
    second road game and second against an NCAA Tournament team last March. It gives
    us more confidence to know were doing so well against great teams, so just lets
    us know where we are so far, Moore said. All teams get better throughout the
    season. Its good to know were starting off pretty well.HEIGHT ADVANTAGEWalz
    played five Cardinals who are 6-foot-2 or taller against a team with only
    Rebecca Reuter taller than 6 foot. The Cardinals outrebounded Middle Tennessee
    44-30 and had a huge edge at the free throw line (21 of 27) compared to the Blue
    Raiders (3 of 6). The Cardinals even affected shots they werent around as the
    Blue Raiders missed some wide-open shots.We probably missed seven chip shots,
    Insell said. Well thats 14 points thats uncontested shots that we usually knock
    down that because of their size we were looking for them and we didnt follow
    through. We hit those seven chip shots, you look at the game its a little bit
    different.UP NEXTLouisville hosts Bowling Green on Saturday afternoon.Middle
    Tennessee visits Tennessee Tech on Saturday.
