St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Ben Zobrist provided the game-winning single in the bottom of the 13th inning as the Tampa Bay Rays extended their winning streak to seven games with a 4-3 decision over the Minnesota Twins.

A throwing error by Ryan Pressly (2-1) on a pickoff attempt put the go-ahead run in scoring position. Luke Scott then worked a walk to bring up Zobrist, who sliced a base hit into right.

The Rays have won the first three of this four-game set, leaving the Twins with their sixth straight road series loss as well as their 10th defeat in 11 games.

Cesar Ramos (2-2) was the last of six bullpen pitchers used by the Rays, with the lefty recording the last two outs in top of the 13th to strand runners at the corners.
