Devil Rays 4, Twins 2
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Johan Santana's amazing Metrodome winning streak finally ended against Tampa Bay.
Carl Crawford hit an inside-the-park home run and Santana (2-1) lost at home for the first time since Aug. 1, 2005, despite striking out 10 in seven innings. He had won 17 in a row at home and the Twins had won all 24 games in which the two-time All Star pitched.
Scott Kazmir allowed two runs on six hits without a walk and struck out six in eight sharp innings for the Devil Rays.
Tampa Bay scored three runs in the fifth and erased a 10-game losing streak at Minnesota. This was its first victory here since June 3, 2004, when Santana was also the victim.
Al Reyes worked the ninth for his third save in as many attempts.
