Rays Vs. Twins: Tampa Bay Wins In Extras, 7-3

Nine innings was not enough for the Tampa Bay Rays and Minnesota Twins to decide a winner, but the Rays would emerge victorious with a 7-3 win in 10 innings Sunday.

Tampa Bay jumped out to a 2-0 lead after their first two innings batting, but the Twins would answer with two in the bottom of the second when Justin Morneau hit a two run homer. The Twins took the lead in the bottom of the third, when Joe Mauer knocked in a run with a single.

The Rays tied the game in the top of the fifth when Sean Rodriguez doubled home a run. The two teams would remain tied until the top of the 10th when Tampa Bay exploded for four runs, highlighted by a two-run single by Ryan Roberts and a two-run double by Matt Joyce.

David Price went seven innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits while striking out only two.
