Cron's HR caps 6-run first as Twins beat Rangers 12-7

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Tyler Duffey's season win total increased before the game while he was sitting in the clubhouse and again Saturday night after he was back out on the mound for the Minnesota Twins.

Duffey got the decision in the Twins' latest win by retiring the last two batters of the fifth inning and leaving the bases loaded in a 12-7 victory over the Texas Rangers. Hours before the first pitch, he was awarded a win for Minnesota's 4-3 victory Friday night that originally was credited to Sam Dyson.

"Tonight, I didn't even think about the chance that I could (get another win)," said Duffey (4-1), who struck out the lone batter whom he faced Friday to end the sixth inning. "It's great. To contribute to wins is what we want to do."
