Twins shut down by Vargas in 5-0 loss to Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Ricky Nolasco was virtually unhittable a week ago in Minnesota, shutting down the scuffling Royals over eight innings in an easy victory that came amid a three-game sweep.

Nothing was easy for Nolasco on Friday night.

The right-hander was battered around for the better part of six innings, out-pitched by the Royals' Jason Vargas in a 5-0 loss that opened the Twins' three-game series in Kansas City.
