Rays Vs. Twins: Tampa Bay Holds On For 4-2 Win

The Tampa Bay Rays posted three runs during the top of the first inning -- a two-run homer from B.J. Upton and a solo shot from Matt Joyce. That early rally proved to be the catalyst as the Rays went on to top the Minnesota Twins at Target Field on Saturday night by a final score of 4-2.

Upton would homer again in the fifth, his 12th of the season.

Dave Price took the mound for the Rays and improved to 15-4 on the season, earning the win after striking out five batters and giving up just two runs over seven innings. Closer Fernando Rodney grabbed his 35th save of the season, as well.

The series finale is scheduled for Sunday at 2:10 p.m. EST. Tampa Bay also grabbed the first game of the series on Friday night
