PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Miguel Sano hit the highest pop-fly ever at Tropicana Field before sending two other balls deep into the left-field seats.Sano homered twice and drove in four runs as the Minnesota Twins took two of three in a series between the teams with the ALs worst records by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 6-3 on Sunday.It was really fun to hit the home runs and help the team to win the series, Sano said through a translator. Im going to keep on doing my job.Sano put the Twins up 3-1 on a three-run shot off Matt Andriese in the third and added a solo drive during the ninth against Ryan Garton.

I wasnt too sure exactly where it went but Longo kept his eye on it, so thats cool.The Twins have won eight of 11.Its fun to get on a roll and find a way to win some games, Minnesota manager Paul Molitor said.Kyle Gibson (4-6) gave up two runs, six hits and walked four over five innings to get his first win over Tampa Bay after four losses.

Tampa Bay OF Steven Souza Jr. said A-Rod was one his favorite players growing up. I know it hasnt been the season that David Ortiz is having this year with his send-off, Souza said.

ARCADIA, Calif. -- Beholders career numbers are impressive.She has won 13 of 14 at Santa Anita, including the Grade 1 Zenyatta Stakes three straight years. She has won 17 of 24 overall, including 10 Grade 1 races, earned nearly $5 million, and will go down in history as one of Californias greatest female racehorses.Another Beholder number, however, is uncharacteristic. When she faces Stellar Wind and Taras Tango on Saturday at Santa Anita, Beholder is trying to end the longest losing streak of her career -- all of two races.At Del Mar this summer, Beholder finished second to Stellar Wind in the Clement L. Hirsch Stakes and second to California Chrome in the Pacific Classic.She ran into two very good horses, trainer Richard Mandella said. I might have contributed to her getting beat the first time, might have been easy on her.As for Beholders second loss, no excuse required. No one beats California Chrome.California Chrome runs in race 7 on Saturday at Santa Anita. Beholder tackles Stellar Wind and Taras Tango in race 9, the 1-1/16-mile Zenyatta, a Win and Youre In for the Breeders Cup Distaff on Nov. 4 at Santa Anita.Taras Tango was an unexpected addition, but the Zenyatta was always the target for Stellar Wind, trying for her second upset over Beholder.The last one, I said whatever happens, its going to be a hell of a race, said Stellar Winds trainer, John Sadler. And this one, its going to be very similar. Theyre very close.Stellar Wind was making her second start of the season July 30, when she defeated Beholder by a half-length while carrying two pounds fewer (121-123). Both carry 125 in the Zenyatta.The race, Sadler said, will come down to two or three intangibles. Who draws where? Is there any speed to push Beholder?Stellar Wind got lucky on both accounts. She drew post 5 in the five-runner field, while Beholder is in post 2. And yes, there is speed to push Beholder. Vale Dori, a presser, is drawn directly to her outside. Taras Tango also has speed from post 4.Although Beholder is versatile, jockey Gary Stevens faces a dilemma -- roll to the lead even though her best efforts have been from off the pace, or somehow get to the outside of her two pace rivals.ddddddddddddOne of those is the Jerry Hollendorfer-trained Taras Tango, initially ticketed to the Spinster on Oct. 9 at Keeneland.We would love to win the Spinster, but the year-end goal is to be in a Breeders Cup race, Hollendorfer said. We thought it would be easier to prepare here and then decide what Breeders Cup race we want to go in.Taras Tango is a Grade 1 route winner and Grade 3 sprint winner. A decision regarding the BC Distaff or Filly and Mare Sprint will be made after Saturday.Thats going to be up to [owner] Barbara Banke, Hollendorfer said. But I would say she would go for the Sprint.Bankes Stonestreet Stables also owns the East Coast-based Distaff candidate Cavorting.Key ContendersBeholder, by Henny HughesLast 3 Beyers: 106-101-101B. Wayne Hughes owns Beholder, who won the 2015 Pacific Classic over males and was targeting the Breeders Cup Classic at Keeneland until she got sick. Her 2016 fall campaign is with fillies and mares.We were a very clear second, no excuses, in the Pacific Classic. We didnt run quite that good a race this year [compared with 2015], Mandella said. Nothing wrong with the Distaff. I dont know that were picking an easy spot.Stellar Wind, by CurlinLast 3 Beyers: 102-99-98Her abbreviated two-start campaign this year was by design. Stellar Wind finished second to Beholder in the Vanity Mile in June at Santa Anita and upset Beholder next out.My filly is really good this year, Sadler said. I thought her 4-year-old campaign would be better, which it has. We want to run well [Saturday], which Im very confident we will, and go on to the next one.Victor Espinoza rides Stellar Wind, who has won 6 of 10. Plans call for Stellar Wind to remain in training as a 5-year-old in 2017.Taras Tango, by Unbridleds SongLast 3 Beyers: 90-94-96She won the Santa Margarita in March at Santa Anita, finished third in the Apple Blossom at Oaklawn, and then was off four months prior to winning the Rancho Bernardo, a sprint, in August.Martin Garcia rides Taras Tango.-- additional reporting by Jay Privman Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
