Slumping Carlos Gomez homers in 9th inning, Tampa Bay Rays beat Minnesota Twins 8-6 for series sweep
It seemed unlikely that slumping Carlos Gomez would follow through on hitting a home run for his son. He had struck out three times in his first four hitless at-bats. His last trip to the plate, however, produced something special. Gomez hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays completed a three-game sweep Sunday by beating the Minnesota Twins 8-6.
A startling comeback on the final day of the regular season (Sept. 28) carried the Tampa Bay Rays back to the playoffs.
