Hicks homers, Twins beat Rays 9-7

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Aaron Hicks hit a three-run homer, Kurt Suzuki drove in three runs, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Tampa Bay Rays 9-7 Thursday.

Sam Fuld had a pair of run-scoring doubles for the Twins, who won two of three for their first road series win against the Rays since Sept. 4-6, 2006. Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire moved past Chuck Dressen into sole possession of 59th place on the career victory list with 1,009.

After having a four-run lead cut to one, Minnesota went ahead 8-3 in the fifth on a run-scoring double by Fuld and Hicks' shot off reliever Heath Bell. It was Hicks first homer since July 14 against New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia.
