ARLINGTON — The ones you had to feel sorry for were the flag girls in center field. They didn’t sign up for this, not running around this many times in 100-degree heat after every Rangers scoring play.

By the fifth inning, it was unclear who would hold up longer: the Twins‘ bullpen or the Rangers’ flag girls. Both were almost completely spent after five innings. At that point, the Rangers had 22 hits, the most by an American League team this season.

The Rangers scored 18 runs in the first five innings and went on to a 20-6 victory over the Twins at the Ballpark in Arlington on Monday. The Rangers had lost seven of their last eight games to the Twins before bludgeoning their way to victory in the first of a four-game series.
