Rangers Hold on (barely) to End 8-Game Skid with 5-4 Win over Twins
Tony Gutierrez

The arms: RHP Nick Tepesch retired the first seven batters he faced, giving the Rangers their first 1-2-3 first-inning of the homestand. … Tepesch escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fourth with a called third strike on Eduardo Escobar. The pitch was pretty, but C Chris Gimenez had actually been setup inside. … After Tepesch walked Joe Mauer with one out in the sixth, he received a visit from Mike Maddux, but responded by striking out Josh Willingham and getting Kendrys Morales on a grounder to first. … Tepesch finished with 7.1 innings pitched, matching the career high he set in his first career start.
