Kevin Millwood held the Twins to just one earned run, but a pair of errors led to two more Twins runs in the Rangers' second straight loss at the Metrodome. Ian Kinsler and Jarrod Saltalamacchia drove in Texas' runs.
The Twins turned a spectacular double play to get out of a jam in the sixth inning, helping Carlos Silva leave with a lead and earn his 12th win. Torii Hunter drove in two runs and the bullpen threw three scoreless innings.
