Twins thrash Rangers 6-1

Elsewhere the defending American League Champion Texas Rangers visited the Minnesota Twins.

Bottom one, Luke Hughes plated Ben Revere from second base with a two-out single to left off Ranger starter Matt Harrison to put the Twins on top 1-0.

The score would stay there, until the bottom of seven, where Michael Cuddyer sparks a five run inning with this three run blast to left off Rangers reliever Mark Lowe. The Twins would end the seventh up 6-0.

Twins starter Francisco Liriano, carried a no-hitter into the eighth, but there, Adrian Beltre breaks it up, the weak little single getting ths single to go. Liriano, already with one no-no this year, denied his attempt at number two.

Liriano, would however pick up the win as Minnesota went on to beat Texas 6-1 to take three of four games from the reigning AL Champions.
