Rangers 5, Twins 4
ARLINGTON, Texas — Shin-Soo Choo, leading off for the first time in 18 games, had three hits as the Rangers ended an eight-game skid (their longest since August 2005). Shoo had been hitting third but was 10-for-67 (.149) since June 7. Choo had a leadoff single in the first and scored on Adrian Beltre's homer. Minnesota has lost nine consecutive road games.
