Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - Ian Kinsler singled home the winning run in
the bottom of the 13th inning, lifting the Rangers to a 4-3 victory over the
Twins in the finale of a three-game series on Sunday.
Michael Young sparked the rally with a leadoff double before David Murphy was
intentionally walked and Mike Napoli singled to load the bases.
Craig Gentry hit a grounder to shortstop Brian Dozier, who fired home to catch
Young at the plate for the first out.
Kinsler then ripped a 1-2 curveball from Alex Burnett (2-2) to the warning
track in left-center field to plate Murphy and complete the comeback victory
for the Rangers.
Kinsler finished with four hits, while Young plated a pair with a two-out base
hit in a three-run ninth to send the game into extra innings.
Scott Feldman (3-6) earned the victory after pitching the 12th and 13th
innings for the Rangers, who have won two straight and sit atop the American
League West going into the All-Star break.
Minnesota starter Cole De Vries spun seven shutout innings of three-hit ball,
but had his impressive start spoiled by Young's game-tying single in the
ninth. The Twins have dropped four of their last five games.
