The Twins beat the Texas Rangers 5-4 Thursday night at Target Field when Alexi Casilla singled in Luke Hughes from 2nd base with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th inning.  The Twins took a 4-1 lead when Michael Cuddyer hit a 3-run homerun.  Nick Blackburn gave up a towering 3rd level homerun to Nelson Cruz in the 8th inning to tie the game at 4 apiece.  Jim Hoey recorded the final 2 outs in the 9th inning to get the win.  Nick Blackburn threw 7 1/3 innings with 3 earned runs allowed and didn’t figure in the final decision.  Delmon Young had 3 hits including a solo homerun for the Twins.  Minnesota will host Texas again tonight at 7:10, pregame on WJON at 6:40.  The Twins have won 7 of their last 8 games.
