Tepesch, Rangers beat Twins 7-2

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Nick Tepesch won his second consecutive start, Elvis Andrus
and Chris Gimenez each had two RBIs, and the Texas Rangers beat the Minnesota
Twins 7-2 on Monday afternoon.

Tepesch (2-0) allowed two runs in 6 2-3 innings, striking out four to win
consecutive starts for the first time in his career.

Alex Rios added two more hits and now has six straight multi-hit games. The
Rangers have won three straight and five of six.

Trevor Plouffe homered and Eduardo Escobar had two hits and an RBI for the
Twins, who have lost four in a row since climbing two games over .500 on May 21.

After Kevin Correia (2-6) set down nine straight, Roughned Odor and Shin-Soo
Choo lined back-to-back two-out singles in the fifth. Andrus followed with a
double to the gap in left-center that scored both runners and broke a 2-all tie.
