MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Luis Arraez and Jose Miranda hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning to back Dylan Bundy’s strong start, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Texas Rangers 2-1. Bundy (7-5) gave up a run on just two hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Minnesota won its fourth game in a row and kept pace with Cleveland, who leads the Twins by one game in the American League Central.
