MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Jeff Keppinger homered and doubled, then drove in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning as the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Minnesota Twins 7-3 Sunday for their sixth straight win.
Ryan Roberts had three hits, including a two-run single in the 10th. Pinch hitter Matt Joyce capped the burst with an RBI double as Tampa Bay matched its longest winning streak of the season.
Kyle Farnsworth (1-3) worked around a one-out single in the ninth to earn his first win since last Aug. 21. Fernando Rodney retired the only batter he faced for his league-leading 36th save in 37 attempts.
