The Twins bats awoke for the first time during this series with Texas Saturday in a picturesque day at Target Field.

The Twins topped the Texas Rangers 7-2 Saturday to snap a two game losing skid and improve to .500 at 10-10 on the season.

Minnesota led just 1-0 until the bottom of the sixth inning when they were able to get two more runs across against Rangers starter Derek Holland on a Josh Willingham home run.

After adding another run on a groundout in the bottom of the seventh to make the score 4-0, the Twins scored three in the bottom of the eighth for a 7-0 lead. Aaron Hicks had his first extra base hit to score a pair of runs to highlight the rally.

The Rangers scored a pair of runs off Twins closer Glen Perkins in the ninth for a 7-2 final. The Twins and Rangers will close out their series on Sunday afternoon at Target Field.
