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

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Nelson Cruz had three hits for Minnesota, including the go-ahead, three-run, two-out double after Tampa Bay starter Charlie Morton left in the seventh inning to lead the Twins past the Rays 6-4 on Wednesday night.

Taylor Rogers recorded the last four outs for his 10th save, and the Twins beat the Rays for the fifth straight time.

Cruz, who had 373 career home runs and turns 39 on Monday, beat out an infield single that died in the grass halfway up the third-base line during a three-run first against Morton (8-2). His last hit was more in form, a crushed line drive off Emilio Pagan with an exit velocity of 108 mph that landed in deep center field.
