Adrian Beltre continued his torrid stretch by producing more offense by himself than the entire Minnesota Twins roster the last time out.
Depending on which version of Ryan Dempster shows up Saturday, the host Texas Rangers seem to be in good shape for their ninth win in the last 10 meetings with Minnesota.
Beltre hit for the cycle and drove in three runs in Texas' 8-0 win over the Twins on Friday, improving to 12 for 18 with five homers, three doubles and a triple over his last four games.
Matt Harrison took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and struggling Minnesota managed only three hits as the AL West-leading Rangers (74-51) won for the sixth time in seven games.
"We want to be hot the whole year," Beltre told the team's official website. "It's not like we pick spots. Of course, it's probably better if you heat up toward the end of the year. You want to keep swinging the bat good going into the playoffs."
Texas has won eight of nine ve...
