Desmond, Dyson lead Rangers past Twins 3-2 in 10 innings

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Ian Desmond homered to lead off the 10th inning for Texas, and Sam Dyson and the Rangers held on for a 3-2 victory Friday night over the Minnesota Twins.

Dyson surrendered a leadoff single, but he struck out the next two batters and notched his 17th save in 19 attempts. Matt Bush (3-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the win, which lifted the Rangers to a club-record 52-29 mark at the 81-game midpoint of their season.

After losing back-to-back games to the Yankees in New York on the last at-bat, including a six-run rally Wednesday against Bush and Dyson, the league-leading Rangers settled in for a series against the worst team in the majors.
