The first-place Texas Rangers are looking to keep rolling on their homestand with a four-game series against the Minnesota Twins.

The AL-leading Texas Rangers (72-51) will continue their 10-game homestand with a four-game series against the Minnesota Twins (51-72) on Thursday night. They took two out of three from the Baltimore Orioles, including a 12-3 win on Wednesday night powered by three Adrian Beltre home runs and a Mitch Moreland grand slam.

Roy Oswalt (4-2) will start for the Rangers in place of Yu Darvish, who is sidelined with a tight right quadriceps.

Minnesota will send rookie Scott Diamond (10-5) to the mound. The Twins have lost seven of their last eight games.

The first pitch at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT. The game can be seen on Fox Sports Southwest.
