Twins aim for sweep of slumping Rays

Left-hander Martin Perez will take the mound for American League Central-leading Minnesota on Thursday afternoon as the Twins try to finish off a three-game series sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays in Minneapolis.

Minnesota knocked off reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell in a 9-4 win on Tuesday, then rallied to hand Charlie Morton just his second loss in 10 decisions in a 6-4 victory on Wednesday.

The defeat on Wednesday guaranteed the first losing month of the season for the Rays, who are 10-15 in June and have dropped seven of their last nine games. The good news is that Tampa Bay, despite the poor month, is still 10 games over .500 and has the best record among second-place teams in the AL.
