After three: Minnesota 2 Texas 0.

In the bottom of the fourth, Mitterwald got a sacrifice fly RBI.

After Hand walked the leadoff man in the fifth, Jim Panther came in to pitch for the Rangers.

After six: Minnesota 3 Texas 0.

In the top of the seventh, Harrah was thrown out trying to score from second on a Burroughs single. It was the third time in the game, a Ranger was thrown out at home. The shutout came to an end, however, when Kubiak scored on a passed ball on a third strike that would have ended the inning. A walk loaded the bases with two out before Biittner grounded out to retire the side.

Paul Lindblad came in to pitch in the bottom of seventh. The Twins loaded the bases with two out before Brye flew out to end the inning.

Wayne Granger took the mound for the Twins in the eighth. Kubiak made it a 1-run game with an RBI double.

Mitterwald gave the Twins their first run of the game on an actual base hit in the bottom of the eighth but Nettles was thrown out trying to score from second on the play. The Twins then loaded the bases with one out but Holt hit into the inning-ending 4-2-3 double play.

Dave LaRoche took the mound for the Twins in the top of the ninth. The Rangers loaded the bases with two out. Howard then brought in a run with an RBI single. Alas, and it was the story of the game, Biittner was thrown out at home trying to score from second on the play and that ended the game.

Final score: Minnesota 4 Texas 3.

The Rangers find themselves tied with the Indians for the worst record in the majors. Today, they begin a 3-game series at home against the Kansas City Royals. The Royals are in second place in the AL West, 6.5 games behind the White Sox. Kansas City holds a 7-4 advantage in the season series.

A rumor has surfaced that California RP Clyde Wright could be on the trading block.

Because of yesterday's rainout, the Rangers will face the Royals in a double header today.

Baltimore LF Don Baylor suffered a setback in his recovery from a torn quad and is expected to miss another 2-3 months.

In the top of the second, Maddox threw Aparicio out at home as the Boston base runner tried to score from second on a single by Montgomery. This robbed Montgomery from what would have been his first RBI of the season.

After three: Boston 0 Texas 0.

The pitchers dominated the middle innings.

After six: Boston 0 Texas 0.

The next three innings went the same way.

After nine: Boston 0 Texas 0.

The Red Sox got a leadoff single in the top of the eleventh from Griffin and that led to Horacio Pina replacing Bosman on the mound. A 4-6-3 ended Boston's half of the inning and there was still no score.

The Rangers got a man on first with one out in the bottom of the eleventh and Boston went to the bullpen and brought out Bobby Bolin. A double play lineout ended the inning.

The Red Sox loaded the bases with two out in the top of the twelfth. But Griffin grounded out to retire the side.

Roger Moret took the mound for Boston in the bottom of the twelfth. The Rangers loaded the bases with one out. And again failed to score.

Paul Lindblad came in to pitch in the thirteenth inning. He began the inning by striking out Smith for his 30th K of the season.

In the bottom of the thirteenth, Nelson finally sent us home with a 2-run walk off home run.

Final score: Texas 2 Boston 0 13 innings.
