Twins Vs. Rangers Score Update: Twins Blanked In 8-0 Loss

The Minnesota Twins broke up Texas Rangers starter Matt Harrison's no-hitter in the top of the seventh inning, but that was possibly the only positive in the team's 8-0 loss on Friday night. That first hit came from DH Trevor Plouffe, but it was much too little and much too late.

The Rangers went up 1-0 in the first inning on an Adrian Beltre triple, and then put up five runs in the second inning on Minnesota starter Samuel Deduno. In that inning, Deduno shot himself in the foot when he uncorked an errant throw on a Craig Gentry bunt that allowed a run to score and broke the floodgates open. In his five innings of work, Deduno gave up 11 hits and seven runs.

Harrison, meanwhile, gave up only two hits through eight innings and improved his season record to 15-7.

Game three of the series will kickoff Saturday afternoon at 4:05 p.m. ET.
