Rangers slip past Twins 2-1 in the 9th

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Leonys Martin hit a game-winning bases-loaded single with two out in the ninth inning to give the Texas Rangers a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins Saturday night.

Alex Rios doubled with one out against losing pitcher Caleb Thielbar (2-2).

Two walks and one out later, Martin sent a ground ball past Brian Duensing, the Twins' third pitcher of the inning, to send Rios home.

Starting pitchers Matt Garza of the Rangers and Mike Pelfrey each gave up a first-inning run before shutting out their opponent over the next six innings.

Brian Dozier led off the game with his 15th home run, a season record for a Minnesota second baseman.

Adrian Beltre's sacrifice fly following two singles allowed Texas to tie the score 1-1 in the bottom of the first inning.

Joe Nathan (5-2) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win.
