Rays 19, Twins 6: A week of runs in nine innings!

Berrios was able to retire Choi and Wendle the next two batters, then Carlos Gomez...

For the Rays that is catcher Wilson Ramos, shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, outfielder Carlos Gomez, right handed pitchers Sergio Romo and Nathan Eovaldi, and left handed pitcher Jonny Venters (disabled list). Ramos is the most impactful player on that...
