Damon Hits 2 Run HR in 10th, Rays Rally Past Twins
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Johnny Damon hit a two-run homer with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Tampa Bay Rays a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.

Carl Pavano pitched eight shutout innings for the Twins, but was denied the victory when closer Joe Nathan gave up a two-run double to Matt Joyce in the ninth.

Minnesota regained the lead in the 10th on Danny Valencia's RBI single off Kyle Farnsworth (0-1).

Sam Fuld singled with one out in Tampa Bay 10th off Matt Capps (1-1) and Damon followed with his third homer of the season, a drive into the first row of the right-field seats. A season-low crowd of 10,042 cheered Damon all around the bases.
