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. 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.

Henderson (20-3) received winning scores of 48-47 and 49-46, and the other judge scored it 48-47 for Thomson (20-6). The announcement drew boos from the United Center crowd. "Train this hard for this long, its such a long camp and I see my title shot disappear," said Thomson, who fought most of the fight with a broken right hand. "This will probably be it." Thomson and Henderson have been major players in the MMA lightweight division throughout their careers, but the fight was the first time they squared off. Thomson controlled the first round, starting with a takedown and ending round with another fierce takedown, but injured his hand in the process. The injury didnt appear to be a factor as the 35-year-old held his own against the former champ. Thomson also was spurned by a split decision in a fight against Gilbert Melendez in a Strikeforce fight May 9, 2012. "The Gilbert fight that to me was a me a close fight, but I can say how it went either way, but this fight, I won with one hand. I beat the former UFC champion," Thomson said. Thomson indicated to his corner after the second round that he thought he broke his hand. Henderson came out aggressive in the third with a flurry of punches and a late takedown. In the fifth, Thomson landed a right hand and a sweeping leg kick, then got a hold of a kick attempt by Henderson and pushed him into the side of the cage.dddddddddddd Henderson was able to get in one last body shot at the end of the round that ended with some boos from the crowd. "I think I definitely did enough to deserve to get my hand raised," Henderson said. "I like Ws. I like getting my hand raised, any way I can get it, by the skin of my teeth, by any means." Henderson gave up the title after being submitted by Anthony Pettis on an armbar at UFC 164. Henderson had a seven-fight winning streak going into the fight against Pettis, the second-longest run in lightweight history. Henderson is aiming for a third fight against Pettis with the belt on the line this summer, but it is unclear if he will get that chance. On Thursday, UFC President Dana White wouldnt guarantee another rematch for Henderson against Pettis for the lightweight title if he won. "I would say, my opinion in this matter counts for about that much, probably less than that," Henderson said. "It doesnt matter at all what I think or how I feel. It matters to D.W." Henderson isnt worried how many fighters he will have to take on to get another chance at Pettis. "I will take on the entire top 10. The entire top 10, bring them down." Earlier, Stipe Miocic unanimously outpointed Gabriel Gonzaga in a three-round heavyweight fight. Miocic improved to 11-1, and Gonzaga dropped to 16-8. Also, Donald Cerrone (22-6) rebounded from a loss to Pettis last year in Chicago by knocking out Adriano Martins in the first round. Cerrone struck Martins in the head with a right leg kick. ' ' '
