Slumping Gomez homers in 9th, Rays beat Twins 8-6 for sweep

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) 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.
