ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Devil Rays have made Minnesota’s All-Star closer Joe Nathan look ordinary.

The Devil Rays rallied for two in the ninth inning against Nathan and pinch-hitter Dioner Navarro drove in the winning run with a grounder in the 10th to give Tampa Bay a 4-3 victory over the Twins on Wednesday night.

Tampa Bay got two-out RBI singles from Elijah Dukes and Ty Wigginton in the ninth as Nathan blew his first save opportunity in eight tries.

“We got huge at-bats against one of the best closers in the game, and I think we deserved to win the game,” Navarro said.

Nathan called the Devil Rays his “cryptonite.”

“They obviously can score runs,” Nathan said. “You’ve got to make pitches. I left some balls up to them and they did what you’re suppose to do.”
