ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Chris Colabello drove in four runs and two of them came on a 12th-inning single that lifted the Minnesota Twins to a 6-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night.

Colabello's game-winning hit came off Josh Lueke (0-1) after hits by Joe Mauer and Trevor Plouffe.

Casey Fien (1-0) got the win and Glen Perkins pitched the 12th inning for his fourth save.

Colabello drove in Minnesota's first two runs with a fourth-inning home run off Rays starterJake Odorizzi, his third homer of the season and his second in two nights.

The four RBIs gave the Twins designated hitter a league-leading 26 for the season and tied the franchise record for RBIs in April that Kirby Puckett set in 1994.

Desmond Jennings had three hits, stole two bases and scored twice for the Rays.
