Twins' 6-game win streak ends in loss to Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) After winning six straight on the road, the Minnesota Twins headed back to Target Field one run short of another sweep.

Relievers Brandon Gomes, Alex Colome and Brad Boxberger combined for 4 2-3 scoreless innings Thursday night and the Tampa Bay Rays beat Minnesota 5-4. The loss dropped the Twins a half-game behind Texas for the second AL wild-card spot.

"You try to get wins when you're rolling and keep the momentum going. Hopefully we'll look at the bigger picture of how we put together a nice little run," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. "But in the moment you're a little disappointed you couldn't find a way to finish it off."
