MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Brian Dozier hit a grand slam in the 10th inning to give the Minnesota Twins to an 11-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays to cap a testy, back-and-forth finish. The game featured four lead changes from the bottom of the seventh on. Jake Cave singled to start the 10th against Matt Andriese, the ninth pitcher for the Rays. Manager Kevin Cash ordered two intentional walks to load the bases and brought in a five-man infield, but Dozier squashed the strategy with his 16th home run of the season.
