Jason Kubel hit a tiebreaking three-run homer after Minnesota's All-Stars reached base and the Twins beat the Texas Rangers 5-3 Friday night, putting a damper on Josh Hamilton's first home game in more than six weeks.
Kubel's homer in the third, after consecutive one-out hits by
Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau, put the Twins up 5-2 against Vicente
Hamilton had three hits, including a two-run homer and an RBI
single, in his first home game since May 31. That was the day
before the All-Star starting center fielder went on the disabled
list for the second time this season - both times, he got hurt
crashing into an outfield wall while making a catch.
