MINNEAPOLIS -- 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. Hroniss Grasu Jersey . 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. With Joe Mauer missing, placed on the disabled list before the game because of a strained muscle on his right side, the Twins didnt cause Vargas any trouble. They were shut out for the sixth time this season and lost for the seventh time in their last nine games. The 42-year-old Ibanez signed Monday with the Royals, the team that first gave him a regular spot in the lineup all the way back in 2001. He had two hits and two runs in this game, including the solo shot to right field in the eighth. Ibanez was released by the Los Angeles Angels last month. Eric Hosmer, who walked three times, added an RBI single in the ninth inning for insurance. With rookie Yordano Ventura and now Danny Duffy joining the veteran trio of Vargas, James Shields and Jeremy Guthrie, who are all in the top 10 in the league in innings pitched, the Royals have a deep rotation that can keep them in the post-season chase all summer. Vargas improved to 4-1 in his last eight starts, seven of which have counted as quality: six innings or more and three runs or less. Vargas also became the first Royals left-hander to win eight games or more before the All-Star break since Chris George in 2003. Correia lowered his ERA to 4.95, the only time hes had that mark under 5.00 since his first start of the year, after surrendering six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out three. The right-hander completed exactly six innings for the fifth consecutive turn, and he has allowed two runs or fewer in four of those starts. But the second inning was the one that hurt, when five batters reached. He struck out Billy Butler to finish the frame with the bases loaded. NOTES: The Royals swapped RH relievers Wednesday, calling up Casey Coleman from Triple-A Omaha and sending down rookie Michael Mariot, who gave up five runs Tuesday in his second appearance in as many days. ... Chris Parmelee played 1B and batted third for Mauer. He had two hits and stretched his hitting streak to a career-long 12 straight games. ... One of the runners to reach second base for the Twins was Sam Fuld, who was originally ruled out on a steal attempt to end the fifth inning. Manager Ron Gardenhire challenged the call, which was overturned. Gardenhire is 9 for 19 on challenges this season. ... With a rest day for Royals CF Lorenzo Cain, SS Alcides Escobar batted leadoff for the first time this season. Dion Sims Jersey . Chris Johnson singled with two outs off left-hander Jerry Blevins (1-1), and Schafer pinch ran. With a 2-2 count, Schafer ran on the pitch and Upton dropped a single in front of Bryce Harper. Schafer already was rounding third when Schafer bobbled the ball. Sherrick McManis Jersey .FIFA says it is relaxing the rule which forced match officials to leave its international list at the end of the year they turned 45. http://www.authenticbearsnflfansmall.com/c-65-bears-mike-glennon-jersey.aspx . The Force had two men, including former Wallabies No. 8 Ben McCalman, in the sin-bin in the dying minutes of the match, but were able to resist a late Highlanders surge to post a four-try, bonus point win.WINNIPEG -- It has the look of training camp at Investors Group Field as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers try out new prospects to help turn around their disappointing season. On Wednesday, there were five quarterbacks throwing passes, including newly signed Levi Brown, who spent last season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The day before, the Bombers (1-8) looked at some defensive players in a private, closed practice. "He (Brown) was recommended highly to us so we thought wed bring him in and take a look at him," said Bombers coach Tim Burke. "Depending on what happens with our quarterbacks, you know if somebody gets hurt, hes there for us. "If nobody gets hurt, then potentially send him back home and bring him back." Brown was a 2010 seventh-round draft pick of the Buffalo Bills. He saw action in the NFL clubs final regular-season game as a rookie, completing two-of-three passes for 24 yards. The 26-year-old from Mount Juliet, Tenn., spent the following season on the Bills practice roster before getting a tryout with the Roughriders. "Its always good to get another shot," Brown said after practice. "It didnt work out for me in Saskatchewan so Im glad to be here Winnipeg." Burke said Brown worked out for the Bombers on Tuesday along with the defensive players. "We had five guys, worked them out," he said. "We had one corner, one free safety/Will-type guy, two defensive ends and then Levi. "We look to sign one or two of those guys here." Burke has said if Winnipegs secondary doesnt improve its play, changes will be made. In particular, hes targeted the units failure to cope well with man coverage. Burke made it clear Wednesday hes talking more about veterans and not rookies, who he is cutting more slack to following Winnipegs 48-25 loss to Saskatchewan (8-1) on Sunday. "I was very critical of the secondary after the game and after watching the video," he said. "The guys that Im not happy about are the veteran guys who make big mistakes." Defensive back Demond Washington, a first-year starter, said members of the Bombers secondary have heard Burkes message. "Any time you get negative attention from anyone youre not going to like it but at the same time weve got to step up to the challenge," he said. "Weve got to get it done. "We cant make excuses." Winnipeg is also looking for help on its offensive line with veteran tackle Andre Dougllas out for an extended period due to injury. Dan Hampton Jersey. On Thursday, the Bombers are expected to announced the signing of Colt Schulte, a six-foot-six, 295-pound offensive lineman from Missouri Western. "Thats the rumour, yes," was all Burke would say even though Schulte was seen at Investors Group Field. Quarterback Justin Goltz will start again against Saskatchewan. Goltz was 18-of-29 passing for 182 yards and two interceptions Sunday but also ran five times for 73 yards and two TDs. Burke said while Goltz made some mistakes, he saw growth in the 26-year-old quarterback. "I think we all felt Justin played extremely well for the first three quarters," Burke said. Winnipeg trailed Saskatchewan by six points with eight minutes remaining Sunday before the Riders took control of the game with two interceptions and a blocked punt. Burke says some of the improvement Goltz has made is due to the changes new offensive co-ordinator Marcel Bellefeuille has implemented. "His reads are easier and they occur earlier in the play so Justin has a chance to get his feet set earlier than before," said Burke. "He can make plays with his feet and thats always positive in the CFL so weve decided to go with him for another week." One element of Goltzs play Sunday that Burke didnt like was the quarterbacks touchdown celebrations. Goltz was criticized, especially in Regina, for pretending to adjust his tie after scoring and also appeared to mimic the post-TD celebration of Saskatchewan tailback Kory Sheets. Burke doesnt like individual showboating and says players should celebrate with their teammates. At the same time Burke defended Goltz, suggesting the Saskatchewan media has blown the matter out of proportion and that some of Riders exuberant fans werent exactly shrinking violets Sunday. "Its the pot calling the kettle black," he said. Goltz said hell heed his coachs words and no longer have a TD celebration. "The CFLs a league where guys celebrate touchdowns," he said. "I didnt think it would be a big deal if I did as well." Winnipegs injured list now includes slotback Aaron Woods but receiver Jade Etienne has been cleared to practise after showing symptoms of a concussion. Burke said despite the huge difference in the two teams won-lost records, he feels good about Winnipegs chances Sunday. "I expect a very good game this week," he said. "I just feel it."
