Longoria’s HR Streak Reaches 4 Games to Power Rays 7-5
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Evan Longoria homered for the fourth consecutive game, connecting twice, and the Tampa Bay Rays earned a 7-5 win against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
Logan Morrison also homered twice and Longoria added an RBI single in the ninth for Tampa Bay, which entered with the third-most homers in the major leagues and hit a total of 11 in the four games in Minnesota.
Xavier Cedeno (3-1) got the win despite allowing a game-tying homer to Eduardo Nunez in the bottom of the eighth. Alex Colome stayed perfect with his 15th save in 15 chances.
Kevin Jepsen (2-5) allowed two hits and two walks in the ninth as the Twins lost for the sixth time in seven games.
