MINNEAPOLIS -- The Rangers defense let them down in the first inning, setting the tone for their worst game of the season.Chi Chi Gonzalez recorded just two outs in his second start of the season, and Texas lost 17-5 to the Minnesota Twins on Saturday.Ryan Rua and Robinson Chirinos homered for the AL-leading Rangers, who had won five of seven. Rua and Chirinos each had two hits and two RBI.Max Kepler homered twice and set a Twins rookie record by driving in seven runs. Eduardo Nunez had four hits for Minnesota, which scored at least three runs in four of the first five innings.Gonzalez (0-1) walked two batters and gave up two hits in Minnesotas four-run first. He was hurt by poor defense, with misplays on three consecutive batters extending the inning.With two on and one out, Gonzalez snagged Brian Doziers comebacker, but Rougned Odor dropped the throw to second base, erasing a chance for an inning-ending double play. Kepler then grounded softly to first baseman Mitch Moreland, who threw home too late to force Nunez.Finally, Eduardo Escobar hit a potential double-play grounder, but shortstop Elvis Andrus dropped Odors feed. He recovered in time to retire Kepler, but that opened the door for Juan Centenos two-run single.Rangers manager Jeff Banister pulled Gonzalez after 38 pitches.You get into a situation like that -- young kid, could have pushed him to one more hitter, Banister said. Wherever that takes him, hes out of that game anyway. Im going to protect him.Cesar Ramos replaced Gonzalez and was charged with seven runs in 2 1/3 innings as the Twins worked their way through the Texas bullpen. The Rangers finally turned to backup catcher Bryan Holaday for the last four outs.Super frustrating, Gonzalez said. I felt good going into the game. I had my confidence up. Tough one to swallow.Tyler Duffey (4-6) was the beneficiary of the outburst, pitching six innings for his second straight win. He gave up four runs and eight hits.NEW BULLPEN ACE?Holaday entered with two out in the seventh inning and needed only 18 pitches to get the final four outs. He used a hybrid, as he put it, to retire all four batters on lazy fly balls to the outfield.I mess around pretty much every day, he said of his preparation for pitching. Obviously no one wants that, but when you play 162 games its going to happen. Im just glad I could help out and save some arms.Holaday said he had pitched once in Triple-A, retiring both batters he faced.Hopefully I dont get overexposed, he deadpanned.INTERNATIONAL SIGNINGSSaturday was the first day of the 2016 MLB international signing period. The Rangers announced deals with six players, including four from Venezuela -- outfielder Angel Aponte, catcher David Garcia, infielder Emir Velasquez and shortstop Jember Gutierrez. They also signed outfielder Daniel Quiceno from Colombia and outfielder Danny Drullard from the Dominican Republic.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: RHP Trevor May (back) pitched a scoreless inning for Triple-A Rochester in his injury rehab assignment on Friday.

PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Boston Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz could have his next start pushed back at least a couple days. Buchholz, 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA this season, left his start Saturday in the seventh inning in the nightcap of a day-night doubleheader with what the team called "neck tightness." Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Buchholz may not be ready to throw his normal between starts bullpen session on Wednesday. His next scheduled start is Friday. "I think over the next couple days well get a better read on when his next start will line up," Farrell said before Monday nights game against Tampa Bay. "But most importantly he feels improvement over yesterday." Buchholz said he didnt plan to throw for the second consecutive day Monday. "I want to be out there ... I want to help the team," Buchholz said. "Me, going out there at 80 per cent is not going to help anybody because theres going to be an apprehension of me throwing a pitch. Id rather take care of it now." Also, the Red Sox reinstated third baseman Will Middlebrooks from the 15-day disabled list.dddddddddddd Sidelined by a lower back strain, Middlebrooks was in the starting lineup for Mondays game with the Rays. With Middlebrooks back, Jose Iglesias, who had been filling in at third, will move into a utility role. Farrell said Iglesias should play at least three times a week on the left side of the infield. "Will is healthy, hes back and in the lineup," Farrell said. "Jose knows that hes got a bright future here and hes earned his way to remain on this roster rather than go back down to Triple-A." Iglesias entered Monday with a 13-game hitting streak, hitting .435 (20 for 46) over the stretch. "Of course you want to play, but bottom line Im happy to be here," Iglesias said. To make room on the roster, Boston designated infielder Pedro Ciriaco for assignment. "I think there will be a lot of interest in him," Farrell said. "Hes a good player, and hes done a good job while here in Boston." ' ' '
