Dozier hopes to lead Twins to series win vs. Rays

MINNEAPOLIS -- Brian Dozier had just finished off a big win for the Minnesota Twins on Saturday with a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Dozier said winning Saturday -- after losing to the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday to continue a season-long trend -- was important. The Twins are aware, even as they've climbed to the top of the American League Central, that they are excelling on the road and missing chances at home.

"It was a must win as far as with the pressure building to win at home for us, have a chance to win the series," Dozier said. "Good teams find ways, even down early again, (Eddie) Rosario with the big hit and manufacture runs last in the game. It's a big win, a chance to win the series."
