MINNEAPOLIS – The Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 Wednesday afternoon.

This is the sixth time the Twins have been shut out this season. They have lost seven of their last nine games.

The loss comes after an announcement that Joe Mauer has been placed on the disabled list following last night's game at Target Field against the Royals. He strained a muscle during the fourth inning of that game.
