The Twins won their 6th game in their last 7 with a 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Target Field Tuesday night.  Michael Cuddyer had a 2-run single and Ben Revere had 2 hits and 2 runs scored for the Twins.  Scott Baker threw 5 innings with 3 hits and 1 unearned run allowed to get the win and improve to 7-5.  Baker left the game early with a right elbow strain.  He doesn’t consider the injury to be serious.

Matt Capps struggled to get the save and left with 2 outs, 2 base runners and 1 run already in in the 9th inning.  Glen Perkins came in to get Johnny Damon to groundout to shortstop to end the game.  Perkins gets the save, his 2nd.

The Twins are 38-46 and 7 games back of Cleveland for first place in the American League Central.  Minnesota will go for the sweep of the Rays this afternoon at 12:10, pregame on WJON at 11:40.  Lefthander Francisco Liriano (5-7) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Wade Davis (7-6) toes the rubber for the Rays.
