MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jason Vargas threw seven scoreless innings, Raul Ibanez homered in his second game for Kansas City and the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 Wednesday.

Vargas (8-3) allowed four singles and two walks while striking out five, allowing only two runners from a diluted Twins lineup to reach second base.

Mike Moustakas and Jarrod Dyson hit RBI singles in the second inning against Kevin Correia (4-10), and that was all Vargas needed. The Twins were shut out for the sixth time this season and lost for the seventh time in their last nine games.

Twins first baseman Joe Mauer has gone on the 15-day disabled list after hurting his side in Tuesday night's game against the Royals.

The Twins said Mauer has a right oblique strain. He apparently suffered the injury when he doubled in the fourth inning, a hit that ran his hitting streak to 12 games.

Mauer had hit .320 with 13 RBIs in his last 19 games. The Twins called up Chris Colabello from Triple-A Rochester to take his place on the roster. Colabello was hitting .275 with six home runs and 27 RBI in 36 games with the Red Wings.
