MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Denard Span had two hits, an RBI and made a lunging catch while colliding with Orlando Hudson to end the game and the Minnesota Twins completed a rare three-game sweep with a 6-3 victory over the stumbling Texas Rangers on Sunday night.

The Twins gathered around Hudson in center field and watched quietly while trainers attended to him. After several minutes, he got up and walked off under his own power.

Scott Baker (5-4) allowed three runs on eight hits in six innings for the Twins, who recorded just their second sweep of the season in eight tries. Jason Kubel added two hits and two RBIs.

Rangers starter Derek Holland (2-1) left with no outs in the second inning because of soreness in his left shoulder.
