Cruz's 3-run double in 7th leads Twins past Rays 6-4

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) By the bottom of the seventh inning, the Minnesota Twins were not only missing their early lead but their entire starting outfield.

Resiliency, well, that has rarely left them this season. Nelson Cruz was the latest member of this potent lineup to contribute a game-defining hit.

Cruz went 3 for 4 with the go-ahead, three-run, two-out double for the Twins, who chased away Tampa Bay starter Charlie Morton in the seventh inning and overtook the sputtering Rays for a 6-4 victory on Wednesday night.
