Ben Zobrist's RBI single off Ryan Pressly in the bottom of the 13th inning gave the Rays a walk-off win over the Twins, 4-3 Wednesday night in Tampa Bay.

Pedro Florimon hit a two run home run, his fourth of the season, to give the Twins a 2-1 lead in the third inning.

Clete Thomas put the Twins up by two with a two-out RBI single in the fifth. Aaron Hicks, who led off the inning with a double, scored on the hit.

The Rays tied the game in the sixth when Kelly Johnson belted a Kevin Correia pitch over the right field wall for a two-run homer. He was the last man Correia faced.

Correia allowed three runs on five hits and a season high five walks in 5 1/3 innings. He struck out six.

Minnesota had another rough night with runners in scoring position. They started the ninth inning with back-to-back singles -- just like they did Tuesday night -- but failed to score the go-ahead run -- just like Tuesday night. In the 11th inning they had runners at second and third with two outs, but Oswaldo Arcia hit a weak grounder to second to end the inning. In the 13th inning Arcia struck out with runners at first and third to end the inning.

Tampa Bay could have won the game in the bottom of the tenth if not for another incredible catch by rookie Aaron Hicks. Hicks robbed Johnson of a sure extra-base hit with a leaping catch against the center field wall.

The four-game series wraps up Thursday with the first pitch at 11:00 a.m.

Note: The Twins (19) and Rays (16) struck out a combined 35 times.
