Vargas, Royals Blank Twins, 5-0

The Twins bats cooled down and Ricky Nolasco struggled again. Just prior to game time, news leaked that Jason Bartlett had informed the Twins he was retiring.  It's doubtful that his alleged "clubhouse chemistry" skills would have made much of a difference on Friday night, though, as Jason Vargas handcuffed the Twins for seven scoreless innings in a 5-0 shutout.

Postgame 2: Tigers 2, Royals 1 (10)
