Correia pitches Twins to 4-2 win at Texas

By STEPHEN HAWKINS

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Kevin Correia pitched seven strong innings and the Minnesota Twins clinched their first series victory at Texas in four years, beating the AL West-leading Rangers 4-2 on Sunday.

Correia (9-10) allowed one run and scattered five hits. The right-hander struck out two and got 14 outs on the ground, including a pair of double plays.

Rangers starter Travis Blackley (2-2) was gone after giving up three consecutive run-scoring hits with one out in the fifth.

Josmil Pinto, the catcher making his major league debut a day after being called up from AAA Rochester, had an RBI double before Doug Bernier's ground-rule double, a ball that bounced just fair down the right-field line and then went into the seats.
