Polanco’s sac fly in ninth lifts Twins over Rays 5-4

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Jorge Polanco hit a game-ending sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to lift the Minnesota Twins over the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4.

Max Kepler led off the ninth against Matt Wisler with a double and moved to third when Austin Meadows misplayed the ball in left field.

Polanco then hit a drive that was caught on the right-field warning track, scoring Kepler without a throw.

Alexander Colomé pitched a scoreless ninth for the Twins, who won their third straight series, all against first-place teams.
