Rangers Vs. Twins Final Score: Texas Scores 6 In Eighth Inning, Win 10-6

Roy Oswalt was making his first start since being sent to the bullpen as he replaced Yu Darvish in the rotation for Thursday's game, and he had a decent start for the Texas Rangers in their 10-6 win over the Minnesota Twins. Oswalt pitched 5 1/3 innings, striking out four batters and allowing three earned runs on seven hits.

The Rangers offense came out roaring in the top of the eighth inning by scoring six runs as they broke away from the Twins by methodically scoring run after run. The scoring started when Mitch Moreland hit a RBI double, which tied the game at five. Then Geovany Soto grounded into a fielders choice to score Nelson Cruz and Jared Burton walked in a run after intentionally walking David Murphy. The runs just kept coming for the Rangers until they led 10-4 after eight innings.

The Twins made a minor rally in the top of the ninth inning to score two runs, but the Rangers brought in Joe Nathan to snuff out the Twins rally, which he did by retiring the one batter that he faced.
