Twins walk off against Texas


MINNEAPOLIS — With two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, 21-year-old rookie Danny Santana came to the plate with a chance to win a game for the Minnesota Twins.

The result wasn’t pretty, but it was effective for the Twins. Texas Rangers closer Joakim Soria booted a soft ground ball back to the mound, handing the Twins a 4-3, walk-off win Tuesday at Target Field.

The victory snapped Minnesota’s four-game losing streak.
