Francisco Liriano allowed two runs and
five hits over seven innings, Delmon Young hit a three-run homer,
and the Minnesota Twins beat the Texas Rangers and struggling Cliff
Lee 6-4 on Thursday night to avoid a four-game sweep.
Liriano (12-7) struck out six and walked one to capture his
sixth straight decision and snap Texas' four-game winning streak.
Lee fell to 2-5 in his 10 starts for Texas since he was acquired
from Seattle in a trade on July 9.
Texas has won only three of those 10 starts.
Lee (10-8) was gone after five innings and 97 pitches, allowing
five runs and seven hits with five strikeouts and one walk.
