Royals Shut Out Twins, Earn Series Sweep

April 10, 2013 Updated Apr 10, 2013 at 10:59 PM CDT

Kansas City, MO (NNCNOW.com) --- Billy Butler hit a first-inning home run and three pitchers combined to throw a shutout for the Kansas City Royals, beating the Minnesota Twins 3-0 to complete a three-game series sweep.

Liam Hendricks was strong for Minnesota, allowing just one earned run on four hits across five innings as the starter. The offense, though, never got going on a cold, rainy night at Kauffman Stadium.

Minnesota is now (4-5) this 2013 season and will next be in action April 12 at home against the New York Mets.
