Dozier's grand slam in 10th gives Twins 11-7 win over Rays

Brian Dozier hit a grand slam in the 10th inning on Sunday to give the Minnesota Twins an 11-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays and cap a testy, back-and-forth finish that featured four lead changes from the bottom of the seventh on.

Maybe the Rays should have traded Nathan Eovaldi a couple days ago. Coming off three straight excellent starts, Eovaldi was looking like maybe the best starting pitcher who may be on the market. Then tonight he gives up eight runs in 2.2 innings with just one strikeout and two walks.

Rays righty Nathan Eovaldi could be interesting trade bait. He's allowed one hit in two of his past three starts after shutting down the Mets on Sunday and lowered his ERA to 3.35 and owns a 44-to-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He's a free agent after the season, so the Rays may as well cash in while he's hot.
