Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the American League’s mid-season team MVPs.
Kendrys Morales had a tiebreaking double off Texas closer Joakim Soria in the top of the ninth inning and the Minnesota Twins snapped a 10-game road losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Sunday. Morales’ line drive landed just inside the foul line in left field, and a leaping security guard avoided touching the ball, allowing pinch-runner Sam Fuld to score from first base.
Phil Hughes hoped to turn around the fortunes of a Minnesota Twins team that came 0-4 on its current road trip and winless in the previous nine games away from Target Field. An early run was all the Rangers needed with Yu Darvish on the mound to hand Minnesota another road loss. Darvish held the Twins scoreless through eight innings on only four singles, two by Chris Parmelee, as Texas went on to win 5-0.
Leonys Martin doubled twice and scored three times, including the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, and the Texas Rangers beat Minnesota Twins 5-4 on Thursday to win their second straight four-game series on the road.
Texas closer Joakim Soria bobbled a slow-bouncing ball hit by Minnesota’s Danny Santana to the left of the mound with two outs and the bases loaded in the ninth inning, allowing the winning run to score in the Twins’ 4-3 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday night. The day began ominously for the Rangers when star pitcher Yu Darvish was scratched from his scheduled start with stiffness in his neck.
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.

Kevin Correia pitched seven strong innings and the Minnesota Twins clinched their first series victory at Texas in four years, beating the AL West-leading Rangers 4-2 on Sunday. Correia (9-10) allowed one run and scattered five hits. The right-hander struck out two and got 14 outs on the ground, including a pair of double plays. Rangers starter Travis Blackley (2-2) was gone after giving up three consecutive run-scoring hits with one out in the fifth.
Leonys Martin hit a game-winning bases-loaded single with two out in the ninth inning to give the Texas Rangers a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins Saturday night. Alex Rios doubled with one out against losing pitcher Caleb Thielbar (2-2). Two walks and one out later, Martin sent a ground ball past Brian Duensing, the Twins’ third pitcher of the inning, to send Rios home.
Pedro Hernandez pitched five shutout innings for his first major league win, Josh Willingham homered and the Minnesota Twins beat the Texas Rangers 7-2 Saturday to end a three-game slide.
Nick Tepesch pitched six strong innings for his second win while Elvis Andrus and Nelson Cruz each drove in runs to lead the Texas Rangers to a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
Now at 25 years old, Leonys Martin has to deal with an unenviable burden: replacing Josh Hamilton in the Rangers’ lineup.
