ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) â€” The Tampa Bay Devil Rays have made Minnesotaâ€™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.
â€œWe got huge at-bats against one of the best closers in the game, and I think we deserved to win the game,â€ Navarro said.
Nathan called the Devil Rays his â€œcryptonite.â€
â€œThey obviously can score runs,â€ Nathan said. â€œYouâ€™ve got to make pitches. I left some balls up to them and they did what youâ€™re suppose to do.â€
