Rangers Top Twins, Give Washington 500th WinSports Friday, August 24th, 2012
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Josh Hamilton had five RBIs and Mitch Moreland doubled in the go-ahead run during a six-run eighth inning that carried the Texas Rangers to a 10-6 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
The win marked the 500th of manager Ron Washington’s career.
Adrian Beltre had three hits, including his fourth homer in two days, and scored the tiebreaking run on Moreland’s drive to left-center.
A pair of Twins errors led to five unearned runs in the eighth as the AL West leaders sent 11 batters to the plate to break a 4-all tie. Geovany Soto, Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus also had RBIs in the inning.
Moreland entered in the sixth to replace designated hitter Michael Young, who left to witness the birth of his third son.
