ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Marcus Semien hit a tiebreaking RBI triple in the eighth inning and the Texas Rangers beat the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins 9-7.
Semien had earlier been part of back-to-back homers with Corey Seager for the first time since the Rangers committed a half-billion dollars in free agency to the middle infielders last December.
Homers by Semien and Seager came after Kole Calhoun’s
Their homers came after a three-run homer by Kole Calhoun, another off season addition for the Rangers.
Rookie first baseman José Miranda and Gary Sánchez homered for the Twins, whose three-game losing streak matches their longest of the season.
