Morales had big hit, leads Twins past Rangers 3-2

Kendrys Morales had a tiebreaking double off Texas closer Joakim Soria in the top of the ninth inning and the Minnesota Twins snapped a 10-game road losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.

Morales' line drive landed just inside the foul line in left field, and a leaping security guard avoided touching the ball, allowing pinch-runner Sam Fuld to score from first base.

A ground-rule double would have forced Fuld to stop at third, and Soria (1-3) struck out the final two hitters of the inning.

Kyle Gibson (7-6) matched a career high by going eight innings and scattering eight hits. Perkins struck out the side in the ninth for his 20th save in 23 chances.
