With Texas leading 2-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh the Twins pulled even on a two-run home run from Trevor Plouffe. He finished the night 3-for-4 with the home run and both Twins' RBIs.

The game stayed tied until the 10th, when Ian Desmond hit a solo shot off Fernando Abad, giving the Rangers the lead for good.

Tyler Duffey (3-6) takes the mound for the Twins on Saturday afternoon against Texas' Chi Chi Gonzalez.
