MINNEAPOLIS -- After a rough first two innings, Nick Tepesch settled down and cruised through another quality outing to help the Texas Rangers stay hot. Tepesch won his second consecutive start, Elvis Andrus and Chris Gimenez each had two RBIs, and the Rangers beat the Minnesota Twins 7-2 on Monday afternoon. Tepesch (2-0) gave up both his runs in the first two innings before lasting 6 2-3. He struck out four to win consecutive starts for the first time in his career. "Thats one of the things that made me successful today, to be able to put the first two innings behind me," Tepesch said. "Treat each inning as a new inning." Alex Rios added two more hits and now has six straight multi-hit games. The Rangers have won three straight and five of six after a rough start to the season. "Early in the season everything didnt go the way we wanted it to," Andrus said. "At the same time, we still trust in each other and we knew theres a lot of baseball left. Everyone is feeling well right now as a team." Trevor Plouffe homered and Eduardo Escobar had two hits and an RBI for the Twins, who have lost four in a row since climbing two games over .500 on May 21. After Kevin Correia (2-6) set down nine straight, Roughned Odor and Shin-Soo Choo lined back-to-back two-out singles in the fifth. Andrus followed with a double to the gap in left-centre that scored both runners and broke a 2-all tie. "Its two-out hits. Thats been the theme this season," Correia said. "That one pitch or two pitches a game, you make that one pitch and its a world of difference." Gimenez made it 6-2 with a two-run double down the line in left in the eighth off reliever Jared Burton and Texas was on its way to another win. "We just got off to a bad start," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "Im so happy that were finally putting it together as a group." Minnesota had its opening day outfield back together for the first time since the first week of the season. Josh Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia were activated from the disabled list after Sundays game and started alongside centre-fielder Aaron Hicks. But the re-enforcements werent enough to overcome Tepesch, who didnt allow a runner past second base after the second inning. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire knows it might take a few more at-bats before Willingham and Arcia are able to help lift Minnesotas struggling offence. "That can be a huge part of it, driving the baseball and let them get a few at-bats here," Gardenhire said. "It takes a little time, a little different pitching up here than down there." Tepesch dominated Triple-A Round Rock after getting demoted in spring training and has a 2.95 ERA in three big-league starts since being recalled May 14. "Hes shown these three starts what hes capable of doing," Washington said. "But you cant hang your hat on a couple of outings. If hes around here healthy, hes going to get many outings. I just want him to be consistent." Hicks, a career switch-hitter, informed manager Ron Gardenhire before the game that he has decided to only hit from the right side. The struggling prospect is hitting .250 right-handed compared to .149 from the left side. He had two singles Monday. Two replay reviews went against the Twins. Arcia slided into third after a botched play in the outfield in the first, but a review showed third-baseman Adrian Beltre tagging him before his foot reached the base. Gardenhire challenged an out call at first on Willinghams dribbler down the line in the sixth, but the call stood. NOTES: Hicks told Gardenhire before the game he had no confidence swinging from the left side. "He came to me this morning and said he wants to hit right-handed. So, obviously, when a guy has no confidence left-handed, you gotta do what you gotta do," Gardenhire said. ... This was Ron Washingtons 1,186th game as Rangers manager, tied with Bobby Valentine for most in franchise history. ... Texas P Tanner Scheppers, out since April 18 with elbow inflammation, had his first rehab outing on Saturday with Double-A Frisco and will make three more with Triple-A Round Rock before being eligible to return on June 3. ... Choo hopes to return to left field on Tuesday after DHing the last two games with a sore left ankle. ...

Wayne Rooney is an old school player and in years gone by, after a great win, you could go and have a few drinks to celebrate. Ive got sympathy for him because Ive done it myself.When I was playing, there was no better feeling than celebrating with your mates. I was in the dentist chair with everyone else before Euro 1996! Would I do that if I was a player now? Of course not. The problem Rooney has got is that now you have to be whiter than white. This day and age is completely different to when I was playing, with camera phones and social media.When youre someone as famous as Rooney, and youre not in the best of form, you have to be so careful. If you want to have a couple of drinks, fine. But dont get caught at a wedding. Wayne Rooney has let his guard down really badly and hell be kicking himself. Jamie Redknapp As much as it was innocuous - and part of me thinks what sort of people sell these photos? - its a sign of the times that you cant behave like that anymore.Rooney has let his guard down really badly and hell be kicking himself.

Others were out in London. Whats the difference?Its going to be a tough time for him. And worse, hes put his manager in a really tricky position. Redknapp hopes Rooneys indiscretion doesnt cost him his place in the next England squad Everyone is going to be looking at Gareth Southgate, saying what are you going to do about this now? Does he leave Rooney - his captain - out of his next squad if he gets the permanent role?Theyve just beaten Scotland and it was a fantastic feeling for everyone. But Gareth is now in such a difficult position and if he gets the full-time job and doesnt pick Rooney for the next round of internationals in March, I dont think Rooney could really complain.However, if Southgate did decide to make a statement, leave him out of the squad and then find further down the line we have injuries to forwards and Rooney is bang in form, it could end up being a sticky situation. Man Utd vs Arsenal November 19, 2016, 11:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass I hope it doesnt come to that. And I dont think it should. When Rooney stops playing for England, it should be purely on football reasons. I hope they dont use this as an excuse to get him out of the squad.Hes come out and apologised and now he has to focus on his football. Its important he finds some form, starts scoring some goals and doesnt give anyone an excuse to drop him because of this. Perhaps on Saturday against Arsenal - in a fixture hes performed well in previously - he can make some headlines for his footballing ability.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!
