The Twins lost 4-3 at home to the Texas Rangers Sunday afternoon.  The Rangers complete the 3-game sweep and send the Twins to a American League worst 2-7.  Minnesota led until the 8th inning when Josh Hamilton hit a 2-run homerun off Twins’ reliever Glen Perkins.  Perkins allowed 2 hits and 3 earned runs without recording an out for the Twins.  Newly acquired outfielder Clete Thomas hit a 2-run homerun in his Twins debut.

Jamey Carroll and Denard Span each had 2 hits and Liam Hendriks threw 6 innings with 7 hits and 1 earned run but didn’t figure in the final decision.  Former Twins, Joe Nathan threw a scoreless 9th inning to get the save for the Rangers.

Minnesota will play at New York beginning a 4-game series with the Yankees at 6:05, pregame on WJON at 5:35.  Righthander Carl Pavano will pitch for the Twins and righthander Freddy Garcia gets the ball for New York.
