Longoria and Morrison homer in 15th, Rays outlast Twins 8-6

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Evan Longoria and Logan Morrison hit back-to-back homers in the 15th inning, Steven Souza Jr. drove in the tying run with a single with two outs in the ninth, and the Tampa Bay Rays outlasted the Minnesota Twins 8-6 Sunday in a game that took nearly 6 1/2 hours.

At 6 hours, 26 minutes, it was the longest game in the eight-season history of Target Field. The longest game in Twins history lasted 6:36, a 17-inning marathon at Cleveland in 1995.

Minnesota resorted to using Wednesday's scheduled starter, Hector Santiago (4-4), in the 15th. He allowed the decisive home runs on consecutive pitches to the first two batters of the inning. Longoria has 16 home runs and 57 RBIs in 58 career games against the Twins.
