MINNEAPOLIS --  All series, Evan Longoria kept hitting the ball hard, but right at someone.
When the hits finally started falling Wednesday afternoon -- especially in key late-game situations -- it made a big difference for Longoria and the Rays.
After scoring only two runs in the first two games of the series, the Rays put a dozen across in the finale against the Twins, including a four-run eighth inning and a three-run ninth for a 12-5 victory.

SAN FRANCISCO --  As good as the Giants bullpen has been, Madison Bumgarner admitted, it's easy for the rest of the team to take the work it does for granted -- to just expect it to put up zeros until the lineup finally scratches a run across.
But even by its lofty standards, Wednesday night was an impressive effort by the relief corps.
San Francisco's pitchers recorded 19 strikeouts, 13 of them coming from the bullpen, tying a club record for most punchouts in a game at AT&T Park. Their work preserved a tie long enough for Nate Schierholtz to blast his second home run of the night -- one that gave the Giants their 10th walk-off win of the season, a 6-5 victory over the Padres in 14 innings.
