Twins 2, Rangers 1
MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Slowey, who failed to get through the sixth in eight of his first nine starts this season, won for the fourth time in his past five decisions. He also is 18-6 at home since 2008. Jon Rauch, who had blown a save and earned a loss in his previous two outings, allowed David Murphy's two-out single but then struck out Justin Smoak. Texas' Michael Young saw his 12-game hitting streak end.
