Twins Finish Homestand 7 and 3

The Minnesota Twins were unable to turn a ninth-inning comeback into a win after falling to the Rays 7-6 in ten innings at Target Field in a matinee game yesterday. The Rays scored three runs in the top of the ninth to take a 6-2 lead, but Minnesota tied the game when Jose Miranda hit a two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the frame. However, Jonny DeLuca had an R-B-I single in the tenth to put the Rays up for good. Royce Lewis and Carlos Santana homered for Minnesota, the Twins dropped to third-place in the A-L Central at 41-34. Minnesota begins a nine game road trip tonight in Oakland.
