Twins Trip Rays, 3-2

Phil Hughes notches his third win of the season.

Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

Phil Hughes pitched seven strong innings, Brian Dozier contributed a home run and two RBIs, and Glen Perkins notched his 100th career save as the Twins edged the Rays 3-2 on Friday.

Hughes allowed two runs in those seven innings, scattering five hits, striking out three and walking one.  It was 2-1 Rays in the bottom of the 7th, with Hughes unlikely to come out for the 8th after throwing 100 pitches, when Aaron Hicks led off the inning with a single.  Danny Santana followed with a triple to tie the game, and a Dozier sac fly gave the Twins the lead for good.

Blaine Boyer continued to somehow not get blown up, pitching a scoreless 8th.  Glen Perkins put two runners on before fielding a comebacker to end the game, notch the aforementioned 100th save, and go 12-for-12 in save opportunities this year.

Good game!  Good game!
