ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Adrian Beltre homered, Shin-Soo Choo had three hits in his return to the leadoff spot and the Texas Rangers snapped their longest losing streak in nearly nine years, holding on to win 5-4 over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

Nick Tepesch (3-3) allowed only three singles over 7 1-3 scoreless innings for the Rangers, who entered the series opener mired in an eight-game losing streak for the first time since August 2005.

Minnesota has lost its last nine road games, including a three-game sweep at the Los Angeles Angels before getting to Texas.

Kevin Correia (4-9) allowed four runs and six hits over six innings. The right-hander, who struck out three and walked two, had given up only two earned runs over 18 innings his previous three starts.
