ARLINGTON, Texas - Kendrys Morales slapped a line drive away from the Texas shift, landing it just inside the foul line in left field where the only person close to it was a security guard scrambling to get out of the way. Mario Kempe Jersey . A deft leap from the guard kept the ball in play and sent the Twins on their way to ending a 10-game road losing streak. Morales tiebreaking double in the top of the ninth off Texas closer Joakim Soria brought in pinch-runner Sam Fuld from first base in a 3-2 Minnesota victory Sunday. After the security guard dodged the ball with his right foot, the carom off a brick wall just missed his left foot as the ball rolled into shallow left field, a long way from Texas Michael Choice. A ground-rule double would have forced Fuld to stop at third instead of scoring easily, and Soria (1-3) struck out the final two hitters of the inning. "We got a couple of breaks, and we won the ballgame," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. Kyle Gibson (7-6) matched a career high by going eight innings and scattering eight hits. Glen Perkins struck out the side in the ninth for his 20th save in 23 chances. Robinson Chirinos had three hits for Texas, including his seventh homer of the season in the fifth inning for a 2-2 tie. Josh Willinghams second hit got the winning rally started with one out in the ninth before he was replaced by Fuld. The Twins had lost the first five games on a six-game road trip after winning four straight on a brief homestand. "It was a big game for us after a tough road trip," said Gibson, who had a 22-inning scoreless streak snapped when he allowed seven runs in just two innings to start the trip at the Los Angeles Angels. "All I did was try to give my team a chance to win and turn things around." Jorge Polanco, making his first major league start for Minnesota, had a tying double on a check-swing roller over the bag at third base in the third inning. The 20-year-old shortstop scored for a 2-1 lead on a single by Joe Mauer, who extended his hitting streak to a season-high 10 games. "They did what they had to do to win the game," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "We didnt. Even if it was check swings and all that stuff, thats baseball. You cant control what happens sometimes." Polanco also had a strong day defensively, helping turn three double plays and taking a hit way from Elvis Andrus on a one-hop smash to his left in the eighth inning. "The kid played great at shortstop," Gardenhire said. "He has good at-bats. Hes got things to learn, but hes doing just fine." The Rangers had runners at first and third with nobody out in the second and again with one out in the seventh but didnt score either time. Choice struck out ahead of Rougned Odors double-play grounder in the second, and Choice grounded into a double play to end the seventh. Texas right-hander Colby Lewis ended a streak of 13 straight starts without a quality start of at least six innings and three earned runs or fewer, which was tied for the major league record with Seattles Steve Trout from 1988. He gave up two runs in six innings and struck out eight. Lewis left in a 2-2 tie, remaining winless in seven career starts against the Twins. It was the second rough outing of the three-game series for Soria. He gave up four runs in the ninth inning of Texas 5-4 victory on Friday. The injury-riddled Rangers (37-44) hit the halfway mark of the season with their fewest wins since 2007 and are 14 games behind Oakland in the AL West. "Were just in a situation right now where weve got guys hurt and were going to go out there and compete," Lewis said. "Thats all Wash asks us to do." NOTES: Chris Parmelees single in the sixth inning gave him a career-best nine-game hitting streak. ... The Rangers won a home series for the first time since mid-April. They had gone winless in 10 straight series at home. ... Polanco is the first Minnesota player to start his career with two extra-base hits since Rich Becker in 1993. Marcus Kruger Jersey . Chan captured two silver medals at last months Sochi Winter Games — mens singles and the inaugural team event. But he doesnt have the urge to resume training to defend his world title when the event is held in Saitama, Japan, later this month. Thomas Steen Jersey . -- The Atlanta Braves are facing the possibility of losing another pitcher for the season after general manager Frank Wren said Saturday that Cory Gearrin has a serious injury to his right elbow. http://www.officialcoyotesfanstore.com/authentic-dylan-strome-coyotes-jersey/ . Seager had another triple, a home run and a double in a rare feat not seen in more than 40 years, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2. "It was a weird play," Seager said of the triple in the fourth inning. NEW YORK -- Andrew Wiggins walked proudly across the stage to take his spot as the NBAs No. 1 overall draft pick, the culmination of a path hes been pointed down for years. The Cleveland Cavaliers selected the 19-year-old sensation from Vaughan, Ont., making Wiggins the second consecutive Canadian theyve taken with the top pick. The Cavs selected Anthony Bennett -- Wiggins longtime teammate growing up -- in the No. 1 spot last year. Wiggins said the ripple effect in Canada will be "huge," and hes proud of that fact. "It opens doors for all the youth in Canada, it gives them hope," Wiggins said. "Coming up when I was in Canada, I wasnt ranked, I wasnt known. I didnt really have any offers or anything like that. I just kept my head straight, kept working on my game, and look where I am today. "I just think it gives everyone in Canada hope that they can do the same thing and accomplish whatever I do. Because its possible if they work hard." Wiggins was the star on an historic night for Canadian basketball. Nik Stauskas of Mississauga, Ont., went eighth to the Sacramento Kings, and Tyler Ennis of Brampton, Ont., was selected 18th by the Phoenix Suns. Dwight Powell of Toronto was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets 45th overall, but was reportedly traded, along with veteran centre Brendan Haywood, to the Cavaliers for swingman Alonzo Gee. No more than three Canadians had ever been drafted in the same year. No country other than the U.S. had ever had back-to-back No. 1 picks. Wiggins had been intensely focused on the top spot, chalking it up to his competitive nature. So confident was he on Thursday night at Barclays Center, he chose a killer suit jacket that screamed No. 1 -- a black Waraire Boswell jacket with a white floral print. He finished it off with a black bow tie and oversized black glasses. "We just wanted to do something different, really stand out, try to win it on both ends, the stylish points and to come No. 1," Wiggins said of the suit that was specially designed for him. In a draft that has been maybe the mostly highly anticipated in a decade, Wiggins has long been touted as the top pick. The six-foot-eight guard has been called possibly the biggest star since LeBron James. Hes been in the spotlight for years -- a YouTube video of him dunking with ease as a 13-year-old has almost five million views. "A thousand thoughts are going through my head right now," Wiggins said. "Its a dream come true. ... "Going to high school and college, the opportunity and possibility of going No. 1 came into talk. And now I accomplished that, so its just a crazy feeling right now. I dont even know how I feel. It doesnt even feel real right now." When his name was called, Wiggins slipped on a maroon Cleveland hat, hugged his dad Mitchell and mom Marita, and then strode on stage to shake hands with commissioner Adam Silver, who was calling the first round for the first time since replacing David Stern. Wiggins makes it three Canadians playing in Cleveland -- the Cavs took forward Tristan Thompson of Brampton, Ont., fourth overall in the 2011. "I played with Tristan for a summer of AAU, and I played with Anthony for a while on the AAU circuit aand on the national level too, so Im just excited," Wiggins said. Shane Doan Jersey. "The chemistry is already there with those guys because I played with them already. I think big things are to come." The six-foot-eight guard is genetically-gifted -- hes the son of an NBA player and Olympic sprinter. He called Thursday night a "huge moment" for his family, including his brothers Nick, who played college basketball at Wichita State, and Mitchell Jr., who plays at Southeastern University. "Especially because my parents were pro athletes before, now they can kind of live the dream again through me, and just watch their youngest son do something special with his life, and play at the highest level of basketball," Wiggins said. "We cherish moments like this. Its great, great for us." The Cavaliers are hoping to bring James back to Cleveland, and if that happened, a new teammate would be glad to welcome him. "I want to win," Wiggins said. "If he wants to win, wed be good together." Milwaukee selected Duke forward Jabari Parker with the No. 2 pick, while Wiggins Kansas teammate Joel Embiid -- a big question mark going into the draft after he underwent surgery for a stress fracture in his foot -- went third to Philadelphia. "He worked so hard," Wiggins said. "He didnt let nothing get to him. He always stayed motivated. So Im just proud. Its a proud moment for Kansas." Arizona forward Aaron Gordon went fourth to Orlando, followed by Australian guard Dante Exum to Utah. The Toronto Raptors selected Bruno Caboclo with their No. 20 pick. The Kings, meanwhile, looked to fill their shooting void by taking perhaps the best marksman available in the draft in Stauskas, a Michigan product whos a bit of a YouTube sensation himself -- his videos of throwing up three-pointers have hundreds of thousands of views. "This is a huge honour for me," Stauskas said. "This is something Ive been working towards since I was seven years old. The face that Im sitting here in front of all you guys now is just. . . I cant put this into words." The six-foot-six Stauskas celebrated with an orchestrated handshake with his dad Paul -- the two slapped hands and then threw up three-point matching goggles, Stauskass trademark gesture whenever he drained a three at Michigan. "A planned handshake that we thought of last night," Stauskas said. "I always just throw up the three goggles. So I thought it was only appropriate I did it here. . . It was a little pressure, but he got it right. So Im happy." Three Canadians had been drafted in the same year twice before -- it happened in 1983 (Leo Rautins, Stewart Granger, and Ron Crevier) and again in 2012 (Andrew Nicholson, Kris Joseph, and Robert Sacre). "I think this is a big year," said Ennis, a 19-year-old Syracuse point guard that the Raptors had been high on. "We had the No. 1 pick, we had Nik go in the lottery, myself. . . At the end of the night, Canada has something to be proud of." The new NBA Canadians join six other players from north of the border in the league -- Bennett, Thompson, Kelly Olynyk, Nicholson, Cory Joseph and Joel Anthony. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
