Rays slip past Twins in 10th
Bullpen falters in ninth
Boof Bonser pitched six strong innings and Torii Hunter hit his sixth home run of the season, but it was all for naught as the Twins' bullpen allowed three runs in the extra-innings loss. Joe Nathan struggled again, allowing three hits and two runs in the ninth. Matt Guerrier allowed the winning run in the 10th inning when Ben Zobrist scored on a fielder's choice.
