Polanco, Twins top Rangers 6-3 for 1st 4-game sweep of Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Minnesota Twins started a six-game road trip outside the lead in the AL Central for the first in almost four months.

They're back on top of Cleveland, with a little room to spare after a fruitful stop in Texas.

Jorge Polanco cleared the bases with a tiebreaking triple in the eighth inning, lifting the Twins to their first-ever four-game sweep of the Rangers with a 6-3 victory Sunday.
