Tepesch picks up second win as Rangers beat Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - 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.

The first-place Rangers have won 6 of their last seven games.

Tepesch (2-1) allowed five hits in 6 2-3 innings. He shut the Twins out through six before Josh Willingham homered in the seventh inning to make it 2-1. The rookie right-hander had allowed only two baserunners up to that point and showed no lingering effects from taking a liner off his right forearm in his previous start last weekend against Seattle.

Minnesota starter Vance Worley (0-3) allowed two runs and six hits in five innings.
