Twins Start Road Trip With Win In Texas
The Minnesota Twins (58-75) started their six-game road trip through the state of Texas with a come-from-behind 3-2 win over the Rangers (78-56) last night in Arlington. Back to back home runs by Chris Herrmann and Justin Morneau in the seventh is all the Twins would need.
Texas scored one in the third and another in the fourth off Twins starter Liam Hendriks, before Herrmann and Morneau did their damage in the seventh, scoring three runs off the pair of homers, both given up by Rangers' ace Yu Darvish.
The second game of the series is set for 7:05 tonight in Texas. Mike Pelfry is scheduled to start for the Twins, going up against Matt Garza for the Rangers.
