    American League Game Summary - Minnesota at Tampa Bay



    (Thursday, July 11th)

    Final Score: Tampa Bay 4, Minnesota 3

    St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Back-to-back home runs by Luke Scott and Evan Longoria in the bottom of the sixth inning lifted the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-3 win and a four-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins at Tropicana Field.

    With one out and the game tied at 1-1, Scott clubbed an 0-2 sinker to right to give the Rays the lead. Longoria followed that by hammering a 1-0 pitch into the stands in left.

    Matt Moore (13-3) had 10 strikeouts and allowed three runs on three hits and two walks over 7 1/3 innings to earn his fifth consecutive win. He has not lost a decision since June 14 against the Royals. Jake McGee pitched a flawless ninth to notch his first save.

    The Rays have won eight straight, tied for second-longest in club history.

    "It's been awesome. We've had fun...we almost don't want to have this first half end," said McGee.

    Joe Mauer had two RBI while Jamey Carroll drove in the other run for the Twins, who have lost 11 of their last 12 games. Starter Mike Pelfrey (4-7) allowed three runs on eight hits in six frames.

    "He (Pelfrey) looks like the ball is coming out of his hands real good," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. "His breaking ball was okay, his change up was okay...he's going to give us a chance to win ball games. Hopefully, he'll be a good starter for us in this second half."

    The Rays got on the board in the third. Sean Rodriguez and Matt Joyce hit back-to-back one-out singles. Wil Myers then delivered a blooper into shallow left field, plating Rodriguez.

    Moore had a no-hitter through 5 2/3 innings before finally giving up a double to Brian Dozier, who scored on Carroll's base hit to center.

    The Rays added one run in the seventh. Pinch-hitter Ben Zobrist tripled to right center and scored on a Myers single to center.

    In the top of the eighth, Clete Thomas walked with one out, Pedro Florimon singled and Ryan Doumit drew a two-out walk to load the bases. Mauer then smacked a single to left, driving in two and cutting the deficit to 4-3.

    However, Joel Peralta replaced Moore and struck out Trevor Plouffe to end the rally.

    Game Notes

    Minnesota has lost nine straight against Tampa Bay ... The Rays swept a four- game series against the Twins for the first time since August 10-13, 2001. It was also their first four-game sweep at home since April 30-May 3, 2012 against Seattle ... Moore's 13 wins broke the club record for most wins before the All-Star break, set by David Price in 2010 ... Moore was named to the All- Star game as a replacement on Thursday afternoon. He will take pitcher Yu Darvish's spot on the roster. Texas placed Darvish on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday with a strained trapezius muscle ... Scott is on a seven-game hitting streak.
